Brittany Embree learned at OIDJ that sports journalism is not all fun and games when a newspaper photographer insulted her while covering the Women’s College World Series. Even though that experience upset her, Embree still wants to pursue sports journalism in college.
“I have been going to OU football games with my father since I was a baby,” she said.
A native of Moore, Okla., the 17-year-old is a senior at Westmoore High School. Embree is the editor of the school’s newspaper and the manager of her school’s football team.
Embree loves eating pizza in the middle of the night with her friends on the school football field. As an only child, she would play with Barbie dolls and dress up with her cat, Tiger.
As she grew up, she realized that playing with dolls was not her calling and is exploring her options in journalism.
