Why did you choose KU?

 The main attraction that brought me to KU was the D1 rugby program.

Why did you choose your major?

I am a sport management major, I have always had a deep love for sport and always knew from when I was young that I would be involved in the sports industry.

What goals do you have for your major?

I am hoping to work for a sports team in one of the major leagues in the US or get an internship for a sports agency firm. I would like to be able to manage athletes, as that is something I have a big interest in pursuing.

How has KU helped you achieve/start to achieve these goals?

KU has helped me have a better understanding of the sports industry in ways I did not know before, I am excited to learn more and to be able to apply my knowledge in the real world. 

What advice would you give incoming students?

The advice I would give to incoming students: have an understanding of what you want to do after university, this allows you time to get everything you need before you start working. A lot of people struggle to stay disciplined because they do not know what they want.
