MEDIA & MARKETING INTERN
This summer I completed an internship programme for the Brazos Valley Cavalry - a USL League Two 'soccer' team in Bryan, Texas. During my time at the Cavalry I was responsible for a wide range of tasks, such as social media, marketing and sales, as well as getting to be involved in the day to day running of the club. As the Cavalry are affiliates of Houston Dynamo, in the MLS, I often had the opportunity to work with their Under 23's team; for example going down to the Dynamo's training ground to create content with the players. It was a great experience, that allowed me to work in a variety of roles in the industry, and understand football in America.
