To wrap up the day, the Maryland Made staff took us to a Yankees game. It was amazing! The Yankees were losing 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 flipped out! It was one of the most exciting nights of my entire life!
On the last day, we went to the Nike Headquarters where the recruiter showed us around and explained to us the opportunities for an internship next summer. He mentioned they have a Junior internship program which I look forward to applying to.
Last, we headed back to the hotel to pick up our bags and during that walk, I had a super enjoyable conversation with Laura Chiriaco, director of the MClub, who went on the trip with us. She gave me great pieces of advice that I will keep implementing in my personal and professional life.
The 2022 Career Experiential Learning Trip 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 on my professional journey. This is an experience I would 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 we are given by the University of Maryland and the MClub.
