My name is Michael Volitich, and I’m a student at the University of Florida taking up Creative Writing with a focus on sports. When I’m at a loss for words, I go back to my books to find inspiration. Sometimes, I also listen to sports podcasts to find better ways to communicate what happens in a game and how to showcase an athlete's best points. To practice my writing skills further, I follow our school’s sports teams.

What I love most about my course is that it allows me to dabble in different genres and styles while exposing me to respected authors and their works. Before I am a writer, I am a reader first, and I enjoy drawing inspiration from other successful writers. In the future, I want to write a sports biography and a novel.

Aside from writing and reading, I’m also fond of traveling. I enjoy planning trips and look forward to the challenge of exploring a new place alone. It’s an excellent way to see life from a different perspective.
