As a student athlete, this internship has made me a better leader, communicator and student of the game when I'm on the field. I have greatly enjoyed the internship because of the experience I've received, the relationships I've made with my mentor, supervisor, faculty, other interns, and of course, the students. It has really solidified my desire to become a teacher and has encouraged me to continually strive to become better at what I do. I absolutely feel that this internship has prepared me for my future career."
