Sports journalism work experience

Hello! My name is Holly, I’m in year 11 and have chosen to take PE, Politics, Economics and EPQ for a-level. Recently I have found the idea of becoming a sports journalist quite interesting and I am keen to find out more about the career and see if it would be a possibility for the future. If anyone has any knowledge of work experience or courses that may help me pls let me know!! Also any tips for the future e.g what to study at uni would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
