Christy Cabrera Chirinos
I cover high school sports for the Sun Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale.
I'm one of the few who can say they were born and raised in South Florida. I stumbled upon a love of writing while a student at the University of Miami. After too many sleepless nights trying to decipher chemistry assignments, it was time to change majors and I graduated in 2000 with a degree in journalism and English Literature. After a brief stint as an online producer for Sun-Sentinel.com, I got the call to cover high school sports. I'm enjoying the job today as much as I did at my first Friday night football game. After all, where else do you get to cover games from the sidelines and have the opportunity to meet tomorrow's stars before they really hit it big?
Sports, sports, sports and more sports. I also enjoy traveling, spending my rare free time with family and friends, reading and occasionally, cooking.
