Learn more about Kristin by watching her introductory video HERE and by reading her intro below:
"Hello Big Ten fans, my name is Kristin Scharkey and I will be representing Northwestern University during the Mobile Tour. I grew up in Yorba Linda, Calif. and am entering my junior year at Northwestern where I major in journalism and also play centerfield for the Wildcat softball team.
"When I was making my decision on where to attend college and play ball, NU's consistently top-ranked Medill School of Journalism made it impossible for a softball player with a passion for writing not to choose Northwestern. Since then, I've had the opportunity to work for ESPN RISE, pen my own Schark Bytes blog for NUSports.com and write for several on-campus publications. I'm a die-hard Lakers fan and a follower of Jesus Christ, and I am incredibly excited about providing an inside look at the Big Ten through a student-athlete's eyes. "
You're up, Kristin!
