Megan Brincks has had a passion for writing since she can remember.
“I have always loved to write; it’s what I want to do for a living,” Brincks said.
Originally intending to be an English major, Brincks found that news editorial may be more up her alley.
“I knew I didn’t want to be a teacher, and that is likely what I would end up doing with an English major. News ed appealed to me because of how clear and concise news writing is,” Brincks said.
Growing up, Brincks also became involved in equestrian events. By the age of 9, she was riding trails at a local equestrian ranch 40 minutes from her hometown of Carroll, Iowa. Her love for equestrian sports continued through high school and college. Now at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, she joined the college club equestrian team.
In the summer of 2010, Brincks combined her love of writing and her passion for equestrian. She wrote, edited and took photographs for three magazines produced by the American Paint Horse Association. The work she did is similar to something she would eventually like to do as a full-time career.
“I would like to work for a horse magazine someday, and especially work with event coverage,” Brincks said.
With plans to graduate in December 2011, Brincks is willing to go wherever her career may take her.
