Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
Amanda Schreiber is pursuing a BA in English with a concentration in Writing Studies, and she is currently in her sophomore year of school. Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was raised just outside of the city where various teachers and experiences guided her towards a passion for reading and writing. Her present work was inspired by a course that she took in Fall 2018, where she had to create and design a two-page magazine article detailing a topic related to journalism/publishing. Thinking of a friend, she was drawn to people with dyslexia and the specifics behind their learning disability, particularly if there were any factors that made reading easier for them. If so, the hope was to bring awareness to these factors so that those in the journalism and publishing industries will be more considerate of those with dyslexia and other learning disabilities, making choices to give everyone an equal and easy reading experience.
