I grew up cheering for no other baseball team than everyone’s favorite, the Chicago Cubs. I have been a die hard fan since I was little, all thanks to my family who forced me into it. Growing up, I didn’t have a decision on whether or not to like the Chicago White Sox, because if I did I would have been kicked out of the family. Little did I know my childhood influences would lead me to one of the biggest decisions of my life, my career. My dream job is to trade players for the Chicago Cubs. I am planning on pursuing this by graduating from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and a minor in Sports Management and Marketing. This may be a lot harder than I would have ever expected, being a girl in a man’s world. Not many people see a woman as someone who could be successful in the business world, let alone a business world with a sports environment. This will definitely make my goal a lot harder to achieve, yet if I succeed, it will set the standard for many other women who want to succeed in the sports business world as well. Being a woman who is successful in a very manly sports world will change the perspective of men who look at women as people who cannot contribute to a sports setting. I hope to achieve my goal and pursue my dreams so that women can be looked at differently in the business world of sports.
