Many of you know me but if I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting you my name is Joshuea Ogbuike! I am a rising senior in the UMASS Amherst Sports Management program and was just awarded a fantastic opportunity! I will be spending this summer participating in a highly selective and competitive internship at USSSA who will be running and hosting the first ever U.S. based edition of the WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup in Viera, Florida.
The internship will allow me the opportunity to participate in the organizing of the Women’s Baseball World Cup and spread the awareness of women’s baseball as a sport. This opportunity with be my stepping stone towards advocating for equality in women’s sports. In a short time I have already been able to peak the curiosity of my professors and other individuals with my aspirations to establish a professional women’s baseball league in North America in 2028.
I am hoping this opportunity will better further my understanding of women’s baseball and women's roles in sports as a whole. With all that has come to light recently about horrible mistreatment of women by their own industries, I look forward to taking the steps to help make sure it no longer happens in the sports industry.
This is why I need your help to make sure that I can participate in this once in a life time internship opportunity with USSSA this summer. Your donation will help me offset the cost of housing for the internship.
Frankly, I will not be able to participate in the internship without it so I thank you in advance for any sum you offer. Your donation is supporting a vision that is so much bigger than me.
I truly hope you will consider participating in my campaign.
