A PASSION for sports and all things journalism led our newest intern to the Daily News's door.

James Miller, a second-year student at USQ, said he had only just switched into a journalism degree.

"I studied history and international relations for two and a half years," he said.

"There was lots of reading.

"I think I was the last one to figure out that journalism was the course for me.

"My family and friends all said I should study journalism."

Mr Miller only has journalism subjects to complete.

"I am enjoying it so far," he said. "It has only been a couple of weeks but it's great."

"I hope to get into sports journalism or sports presenting," he said.

"I am happy to try any type of journalism though."

Mr Miller has lived in Warwick for seven years.

"I moved from England to here in 2005 with my family," he said.

The budding journalist played hockey for several years in Warwick but gave it up when he graduated from high school.

"Hockey is my favourite sport to play," he said.

"But I love to watch anything and everything from tennis, to swimming, to golf, rugby league and soccer."

Mr Miller took it upon himself to join the Daily News as an intern.

"I am looking forward to learning," he said.

Yesterday was his first day on the job.

"It has been the best day ever. I have learnt so much already," he said.

Mr Miller will be writing for the Daily News each Thursday and Friday.
