Looking Back and Looking Forward

Eventually I knew this time would come where the summer would end and I would need to reflect on my experiences with the Red Sox. However, I’m lucky to say that my experience gets to continue through at least December of this year. I wanted to take some time to look back on where I was when I started here and where I plan to go after the Red Sox and how I plan to continually grow. When March rolled around and I started with the Red Sox I had zero expectations. I knew I loved the sports and music industry and from the one meet and greet I had with my bosses, I figured they were pretty nice. I didn’t have any sense of what I would be doing and at that point didn’t really care because I could just say I worked for the Red Sox (as any person would love to be able to say). Thinking about that now, I nearly laugh at myself.

This experience has completely changed my career and personal goals and I think changed me as a person. I now have a very clear idea of what I want to do as a career after graduation and I feel more driven than I’ve ever been before. I’ve never had this much passion for something and I’m excited to see where it takes me. The only thing I find myself struggling with now if remaining motivated enough to finish out my senior year at Babson strong. I feel like I have such a clear idea of what I want and I’m continually looking ahead to after graduation, that I can’t even focus on the fact that I still have another two semester of school to finish out. However, knowing that I will continue to work for the Red Sox through the end of the year is helping to push me through.

I can’t thank the Red Sox enough for the experience I’ve been having there. The people I work with are incredible and I have learned so much. I’m extremely proud of all the hard work I did to get myself here and I’m extremely proud of how much I’ve grown both personally and professionally since March. This is the best job experience I’ve ever had and I’m grateful for every moment of it.
