Hi! My name is Karissa. I am a 17 year old high school student with a passion for writing and sports. This is my mini series that I call ‘THE WAVE’. The general idea behind this is that I would pick 6 young Toronto athletes, as Toronto is referred to as the 6, and talk about their upbringings, their journeys to the big stage and what contributions I see them making to their respective Toronto sports clubs. The idea behind the name is that these 6 athletes, along with some others, are the new WAVE of talent that will bring championships back to the city of Toronto.
The athletes that will be talked about in this series are: Blue Jays Marcus Stroman, Roberto Osuna, Aaron Sanchez, Maple Leafs Auston Matthews and Mitchell Marner and Raptor Cory Joseph. Honorable mentions go to William Nylander, Delon Wright and Joe Biagini.
If you take the time to read any of the posts in this series, I would like to thank you! This is my first of hopefully many series on this blog so PLEASE take into consideration that my writing isn’t perfect.
