Wow, since my last “about me,” I have graduated from IU, moved to West Palm Beach, and now work at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Fl (I work in Golf). My love and drive to work in sports has not faded; it has only taken a slight detour during the jobless economy that so many other recent graduates are encountering as well. For the time being, I am loving West Palm and everything it has to offer! I keep finding myself back in the Sunshine State, but check back frequently to see where life takes me 🙂
I’m Natalie Platt, a 22-year-old journalism/sports marketing major at Indiana University, and I am finally (actually, it’s kind of depressing…) a SENIOR! As you can read below, I just finished up a semester-long internship and am back at IU for the remainder of what I have left in school. Right now, I’m volunteering with the IU Athletic Media Relations Department as much as I can, while also being a member of the Hoosier Sports Business Organization. I hope you enjoy my thoughts, experiences, and the meandering stories and antics of a girl in the Big 10. GO HOOSIERS!
January 2009-August 2009: I am currently fulfilling a semester long internship with the Minnesota Twins for Spring Training and their Single A minor league team, The Fort Myers Miracle, for their season, also. This blog is for work and for fun– things I write for the Miracle Baseball website will appear on here (not until later in the season) and vice versa. It’s also a fun and creative way to keep my family and friends back home in Indiana updated on what I’m doing!
