Alexander Mrosko
Avon, Ohio
Bio: I’m Alex Mrosko, a current high school senior living in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. For the past six and a half years I have been learning and competing in high power rifle, USPSA, and Trap Shooting and in this time I have developed a love for the shooting sports. Through my passion for the shooting sports, I have begun writing articles for Junior Shooters Magazine. Some of my notable articles include one about the NRA Youth Education Summit and one about the High Power Rifle National Matches here in Ohio. While writing for Junior Shooters I was also selected to be an Established Contributing Author and in addition to writing, I was selected and later attended the 2018 NRA Youth Education Summit. Because of my love for writing, I would enjoy being a member of POMA and learning more about writing opportunities and potential networking opportunities in the outdoor industry. It is my goal to start my own business in the firearms and outdoor industry.
