Welcome to My Rally Campaign
- My name is Jack Vierra and I am a Sports Managment major and lacrosse player at Wittenberg University in Ohio.
- I have recently had the fortune of being accepted into a program that sends students to Costa Rica to participate in sports management internships.
- The program's aim is to provide opportunities to college athletes who would not otherwise be able to participate in internships due to athletic obligations.
Why I'm Raising Funds
- Unfortunately the internship experience is not free of cost, so I will be using the money I raise to help pay for the initial fee of the program.
- The fee covers the costs of a homestay with local family, meals, two weekend adventure excursions, access to strength and conditioning workouts, all service-learning activities, and student health insurance through HTH Worldwide at Costa Rica's best hospital.
How I Got Here
- As someone who is pursuing a career in sports management, I began looking for internships for professional and minor league teams across the nation. I quickly found that sport internships that do not require a substantial amount of experience and do not overlap with my season was incredibly difficult.
- While I was sitting in the airport waiting to fly home for Winter Break, I received an email from my coach detailing an internship that neither required significant experience nor overlapped with lacrosse season, so I immediately began writing my application essays, and sent in my application during my layover later that day.
- Throughout the break I went through the application process, and was eventually accepted into the program a few days after I returned to school.
