One of Emily’s favorite things about this internship is participating in the classes offered, such as “Muay Thai”, “Jiu-Jitsu”, crossfit, and boxing after her work shift is over. Before coming to JGMMA, Emily never took any mixed martial art or crossfit classes so this experience is completely new for her. Emily has also had the opportunity to get to know the members of the academy on a personal level and can describe to newcomers what each class involves in terms of expectations, the workout intensity, and how a class can help them reach their personal fitness goals. JGMMA is like one big family, and Emily has never been so personally involved in an internship. Emily has made a huge impact on the facility by improving it over the past several months and in turn she is gaining a tremendous amount of professional, real-world experience. Emily thanks the Academic Internship Program for opening up this opportunity to her. JGMMA has offered Emily a full-time position after she graduates. Emily is so excited and feels like no matter what she does she is prepared to enter the professional workforce because of all of her amazing internship experiences with the AIP program.
Thanks so much Emily and congratulations!
