I just went away to coach a summer sports camp in Maine. While I was there, I had quite some time to break away from the job search and really focus on what I wanted to do with my life when I got out. I’ve always been a diehard fan of sports, not just typical American sports, but I am fascinated with everything… including a HUGE soccer fan, rugby, snooker, darts, hurling, etc… I know that I can focus and retain information when it has to do with sports, and I’m actually motivated. After being inspired by watching Coach Carter, I decided I wanted to continue my education, and work in sports.
