Hi, welcome to my blog! This website will present my experiences during my internship with Union College Women's soccer department. I will be reporting weekly my involvement with all the soccer activities happening during the summer.
My name is Talita Russo Alves and I'm originally from Brazil. I moved to United States in search of a soccer scholarship joining the passion for soccer with the dream of having an education in another country.
When I first moved to U.S I went to California to play in a community college for 2 years. In 2010, I transferred to Tiffin University where I'm majoring in Sports Management and have an athletic scholarship for soccer. I'm a senior now, and I'm already looking to experience the maximum activities related to the sports so I can apply in the field of sports management once I graduate.
In the future, I plan on getting some more experience working in U.S. and then move back to Brazil to help improve the Sports Management field and maybe have an opportunity to work in the World Cup 2014, and Olympics 2016 that will be happening in Brazil as well.
