Amherst, Massachusetts, United States
I want to promote new athletes through strong community relations and service. Clean business and good community service can make a rookie a household name through loyal followers. I think that the best way for athletes to reciprocate their fans is to give back to the communities that they come from. Professional athletes are some of the most idolized people in the world, they have more power than anyone really understands.
Sports has more power than people realize as well. Exercise and sports can really change lives. I feel strongly that not enough is done to give people with disabilities the most normal life possible, and I believe that sports has the ability to make these people feel normalcy. With the help of athletes the possibilities are endless; not only will they be helping their community, but in return they will be getting support from the people around them. Sports need revenue in order to pay athletes, and revenue comes from fans. It's a win, win.
I am currently a student at The University of Massachusetts Amherst, working as an administrative assistant for the Men's Lacrosse team. I am also the current president of the UMass Women's Club Lacrosse teama and an active member of the UMass Sport Management Club. I am hoping to make a difference in the marketing world for athletes, I want good reputations to come along with good professional athletes.
