James Tatter is a third-year student from Winston-Salem, NC studying history and economics. He will use the fellowship to cover his expenses for travel to Barcelona, Spain, where he will work with 9inesports, a sports media startup. 9inesports is a platform that seeks to integrate access to sports content such as news, videos and statistics with a social media platform that connects sports fans with each other, their favorite teams, and other brands associated with the sports industry. James hopes to use the experience to improve his understanding of how sports and business meaningfully interact and to gain experience living and working abroad in the heart of Barcelona.
James will be a member of the graduating class of 2019. He is currently an assistant sports editor for the Daily Tar Heel and runs cross country and track for the UNC Club team.
