Hello those of you who check the threads on newschoolers.com. My name is Dominic and I'm a skier with a dream to become a professional. I am taking writing 121 at community college in Portland Oregon and my teacher is requiring that we contact 12 "professionals" in our field of study or in our desired dream job. Now skiing is somewhat abstract in this sense. I could attempt to contact professional sponsored skiers but I believe they will be hard to get a hold of or extremely busy with their lives. My teacher said I could use individuals that may not be professional but have a lot of experience in that industry, so anyone who has worked at a ski resort, maybe as an instructor or coach. Hoping a few of you may respond I will just be picking your mind a little bit. I will e-mail you some questions like what is your story? What it takes to become professional/expert skier, just to help me grasp what my dream job truly entails. Pleas contact me if you think you could benefit me in any way. If you are interested in helping a fellow freeskier pass his writing class I would be so appreciative.
