My goal since Day One was to be one of the students selected for the Athletic Training Education Program’s internship with the New York Giants football team. Each day that I had with the team’s medical staff, I tried my best to ask as many questions as possible, so that one day, I can get myself to the position they are in. This internship was such an amazing experience, and it is an incredible opportunity that the University grants to students.
