My name is Erica Larson and I am a sophomore Journalism major at Michigan State University. After graduating, I am hoping to write for an equestrian magazine or online publication.
I was born and raised in Massachusetts, then moved to Michigan before I began high school. I attended Howell High where I was a staff writer for the school newspaper for a year and a half. I spent the second half of my Senior year helping the newspaper adviser develop a curriculum for a unit on magazine writing for her Introduction to Journalism class. I was also on my high school’s varsity equestrian team for four years and served as captain during my Senior year.
I am an avid equestrian and have a small stable of five horses. I am an active Jumper Dressage rider and trainer, and I am hoping to break into the world of Three Day Eventing this season. I have been riding since I was 5 and hope to continue riding in the future.
