About Me

Areonna Dowdy

I am a sports blogger from the Westside of Chicago, also known as the Mecca of basketball. Growing up in a family with an extended history of a sports background influenced me to enter into the same avenue. I played basketball in middle school and high school and although I didn’t compete at the collegiate level, I knew I wanted to still be a part of the culture in some way. This led to my aspiration of becoming a sports journalist.
