Someone once told me if your job doesn’t give you goosebumps, you probably shouldn’t be doing it. And this industry and all of my internships have definitely always given me goosebumps. Whether it’s after the 100th volleyball game or basketball game, I am just so excited. I get butterflies in my stomach and goosebumps. I love it.
