As a journalist for The Lantern, I was given the opportunity to express my opinions along with my reporting. It was the first outlet I was given where my words would be published for an audience. I used this platform to share my thoughts about the rights owed to college athletes, particularly football players at Ohio State.
My thoughts on the issue have grown since I wrote this piece. I strongly support the payment of student-athletes for their labor and hope to see it come to fruition. I want to thank my editors at the time for letting me share my thoughts on the matter.
