I am very very excited to be participating in the LSA Sports Media Flash Internship opportunity. I believe it will be a great way for me develop a deep understanding of all the workings that sports media has to offer. This opportunity will allow me the ability to network with accomplished U of M alumni and help me answer questions/concerns about pursuing a career in the sports media field. The minute I saw the email for this opportunity, my friends and family all agreed this was an opportunity practically built for me. I have wanted to pursue a career in sports entertainment and media ever since I was little and now I can actually begin to live out my fantasy. I am hoping receive advice about how to jump start my career into sports media and what skills I should develop and work on throughout college to help prepare me for a future in sports entertainment. I am looking forward to networking with extremely talented Michigan alumni, hearing about their journeys and learning how to become as successful as they are. I am currently pursuing a degree in Communication and look forward to learning about how that will translate into a profession in the sports media world. I am eager to begin this experience; it is going to balance professionalism, career- development, sports and fun. I am excited to be touring sports stadiums and network studios, learning everything there is to know about working in the sports media world and figuring out what job would best suit me. I have so many things I want to learn and I am thrilled to be part of something that could be the beginning journey to achieving my dream job. I am thankful to LSA and the University for this opportunity and grateful to be part of this experience. Go Blue!
