Juliana is a first year intern at the WMGA.
We caught up with Juliana to ask her about her experience working as a GOLFWORKS intern:
As a rising junior at Ardsley High School, I feel that working for the WMGA has allowed me to gain experience in a professional setting, which will help prepare me for a career. Showing up to the office every day knowing that I help contribute to the success of the WMGA is a great experience that this company setting allows me. One of the biggest ways this program has helped me is with my communication skills. I do a lot of work with the BlueGolf server that the WMGA uses, mainly by communicating with and helping our users work out problems they’re experiencing while using the server.
I heard about the GOLFWORKS program from a co-worker at the WMGA, who is actually a friend of mine. She encouraged me to apply and told me it would be a good experience. I figured it would be good to get some experience in a professional setting and work with golf because it is such a fascinating sport.
I aspire to study within the field of psychology and build a career out of it. Since communication is such a key part of psychology, interning with the WMGA has allowed me to learn more about the area that I hope to study.
