To wrap up the day, the Maryland Made staff took us to a Yankees game. It was amazing! The Yankees lost in the last inning by one run. When they had 2 outs, 3 balls and 2 strikes, they made a home run with a full house and the stadium rocked! It was one of the most exciting nights of my life!
On the last day, we went to Nike HQ where the recruiter showed us around and told us about the internship opportunities next summer. He mentioned that they have a junior internship program that I can’t wait to apply for.
Finally, we returned to the hotel to collect our luggage and during this walk I had a super pleasant conversation with Laura Chiriaco, manager of the MClub, who took the trip with us. She gave me great advice that I will continue to apply in my personal and professional life.
The 2022 Career Experiential Learning Journey was a one-of-a-kind experience where I met UMD alumni, made connections but most importantly, learned a lot about myself and the path I want to take in my career. This is an experience that I highly recommend to any student-athlete. Maryland Made is one of the best student-athlete development programs in the country and we must take advantage of the opportunities provided to us by the University of Maryland and the MClub.
