About

My name is Ravi. I am 24 years old and will be completing college in December. I am currently taking part in the Bleacher Report's summer/fall sports writing internship. I'm hoping to start a career as a sports writer after graduation. I am a former low-level college basketball player. I also am an assistant men's basketball coach at a local university.

    Ravi,

    Your dedication to and passion for sports are evident in your articles. You bring a fresh, well-studied outside perspective to the Huskers to a fan base in a state that craves anything remotely related to their football team. I admire your goal to become a high school English teacher, as it was my own English teachers that formed the foundation of my writing (despite my apathy and at times resistance to the importance of written English). For this reason, I feel compelled to point out that your mechanics may need some work before you undertake the teacher role.

    Style aside, I count three punctuation errors and one grammatical error in this page's "About Ravi" section alone. Your article titles contain punctuation errors and capitalization errors. Very simple fixes to these would greatly improve my view of your credibility as a writer and aspiring teacher. I expect that over time you will also develop a solid voice (another weak point I have observed) in your writing as your vocabulary continues to expand and you continue to write.

    I would have liked to email this note to you, but could not find an address; I hope you find it constructive nonetheless. Once again, I find your breadth of knowledge about the topics you write about to be impressive. With a little work, you have the potential to become a very good writer and will hopefully one day influence young minds the way that I was influenced in high school by my teachers. I wish you the very best in your pursuits.
