About the Author
Kyle W. Bell is a Political Science Major at Indiana University South Bend. He calls South Bend his home, where he was born and raised. He has always been an avid writer, perhaps explaining why he owns and manages two separate websites, each of them dedicated to different subjects. At the tender age of twenty-two, Kyle likes to think that his youth gives him the freedom to write openly and refrain from being overly cynical. Kyle's main interests include writing, reading books, keeping tabs on the news, watching sports and being with both friends and family. In 2003, he founded the video game news and review website Game Freaks 365. His interest in politics drove him to create KyleBell.com in 2007, a political blog meant to generate ideas and debate on policy, as well as current events. He is the recipient of the Indiana Black Expo's Martin Luther King Junior Award. It was won in an essay contest in 2002 writing about the perils of racial profiling in the wake of 9/11. The following year he was awarded with the Presidential Award for excellence in education. In 2011 his writing on sports development appeared in Indiana University South Bend's Undergraduate Research Journal.
