The following story was submitted by Connor Starrs, a 2015 fellow of The Perfect Game Foundation.
My name is Jennifer Lynch, and I am a rising Senior at Providence College, majoring in Marketing with a minor in Finance. I recently returned from my study abroad semester in Barcelona, Spain, where I had invaluable experiences that assisted me in growing my global perspective and taught me a lot about myself as an individual.
Through prior internship experiences I have found my interests lies with digital media marketing and for the upcoming school year, I have accepted a fellowship position to run all aspects of the Providence College School of Business social media pages.
I began working with The Perfect Game Foundation in the beginning of May and with Del’s guidance I have been focusing on summer internship opportunities and experiences to expand my knowledge of the marketing industry. I have had a deep interest in sports and entertainment because of the excitement and energy that is involved within these industries.
Working with TPGF has given me direction as to how I can get experience within these industries and as one of my first steps I plan to get involved with the Providence College athletic department for the upcoming summer and school year by working with their marketing team on event promotion.
Overwhelming thanks to TPGF and Del for the invaluable advice and encouragement, as well as the networking opportunities. I am thrilled to have just gotten started with TPGF and cannot wait for all that is to come!
"There is no substitute for Excellence – not even success. Success is tricky, perishable and often outside our control; the pursuit of success makes a poor cornerstone, especially for a whole personality. Excellence is dependable, lasting and largely an issue within our own control; pursuit of excellence, in and for itself, is the best of foundations,” The Heart of the Order, by Thomas Boswell (Doubleday, 1989).
