The Man, The Myth, The Legend

By Alex Abele

Hello, my name is Alex Abele! I am a dual enrolled student who has been taking classes at the University of Oregon over the past year and now enrolled at Lane. I am currently an undecided major, but after taking a few courses about journalism and media studies, I am exploring this area of interest more through this course. I was initially interested in sports journalism when I started taking journalism classes at Oregon, but since then my interests have diversified. I am looking to not only learn more, but also improve my computer and multimedia skills through this course. Despite the current safety precautions resulting in remote learning, I am still excited to learn and explore the possibilities of multimedia studies.

Me next to a wooden elephant.

A little more about me: I was born in the UK, and grew up in Southern California in Ventura county. I always lived close to the coast, which always made me close to activities involving water. I love swimming, water polo, rafting, fishing, and just about anything involving being close to a body of water. Aside from aquatic sports, I can land sports too, I love to shoot hoops, skateboard, and go for walks in nature. I identify as a night person and I am bilingual (Spanish) and biracial (Asian-American). I am curious by nature, so I ask lots of questions. So, if you have any questions about me, do not hesitate to ask:)

    Thats really cool that you were born in the UK. did you ever spend any time there? It’s also cool to see that you grew up in Ventura. I was born and raised in LA as well Burbank to be more specific. So far from the classes you have taken have you had any interest in new topics to study? Sports Journalism is a very interesting field and you’d have great opportunities especially with all the sports at UO.
