How HPU helped you get there: “HPU has all the opportunities inside and outside the classroom to prepare me for the future. All the work I did with the Rays repeated the work I have done at HPU. I visited HPU’s Office of Career and Professional Development to receive help building my resume.”

What has your internship experience been like, and how is it preparing you for your future?: “It was incredible to work in a Major League Baseball ballpark and see what it is like working in the media. I saw a new take on how everything in the media is done and was always observing others and asking questions to learn about things I want to do in the future. I feel that this major league experience, at a young age, will benefit me immensely down the line.”
