Javier Sarmiento, Assistant Opinion Editor

Hello! My name is Javier Sarmiento Jr, and I am the Assistant Opinion Editor for the Tack. I'm a transfer student from Harlem, New York in my senior year enrolled at BVU and am a digital media/distributive major. This is my second year as a contributing writer, and this year I have been elevated to Assistant Opinion Editor. I want my writing to inspire and motivate others that anything is possible in life and to give a different perspective on things. No dream is too big or small!!My passions/hobbies include Basketball, social justice, blogging, and poetry. Recently, my Poem, A voice from Harlem was awarded Honorable mention in the rhyming poetry category in the 90th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. I am a member of NABJ ( National Association for Black Journalists) and a member of NAHJ ( National Association for Hispanic Journalists). This past summer I participated in NABJ Student Projects, a small group of students selected to produce multimedia stories covering the annual NABJ Convention & other breaking news. I want to create a difference in the world and leave a legacy to be remembered by. #Followthejourney #BlackLivesMatter #RIPKobeandGianna #MambaMentality #Themarathoncontinues
