About

My name is Kirk Jackson, 2nd child of four to an amazing mother Helena Young. I was born and raised in Northern California, primarily growing up in the Bay Area. I have a wide range of interests, spanning from listening to a variety of music, watching cinema, studying different cultures, writing (obviously) and I enjoy playing and watching sports.

I have an appreciation for all sports; I appreciate the skill level and discipline required to perform at a high level. I can relate to the emotional aspects correlating with victory and defeat. My favorite sports are boxing, basketball and football. I also enjoy playing video games and watching anime.

I am a journalism major, as I enjoy writing, collecting various sources of information and seeking answers. I enjoy gathering information; the process of researching topics (especially of personal interest) and I enjoy the responsibility and ability to report the information.

I would like to cover sports, boxing in particular and journalism is a road that ultimately leads to my goal. I chose the University of Nevada Reno because of the Reynolds School of Journalism. I am aware of the six Pulitzer Prize winners and rich history associated with the university.

    Hello Kirk Jr. This is your aunt Angela in Michigan. So glad you’ve been in touch with your father. I remember your mother Helena and she is a very nice person. You have two first cousins through me, Blake who is 21, and Kendyl-she is 20. They recently lost their father to cancer January 28 of this year. He and I divorced 3 yrs ago. My cell is 3134349037 and you may call me whenever you’d like if you want to. I’m sure all of this feels crazy and you have questions. I would; but always remember that God sits high and looks low and that we don’t know what’s around the corner but God knows. Best regards to your mother and the rest of your family; and good luck to you. I hope that you will want to meet us soon. Love, Angie.
