"This IMG trip was one of the most unique trip’s that I have ever been on. This trip is not only a great networking opportunity, but it also helped me to enjoy some really special experiences from the start right until the very end. It also helped me to connect with other sport professionals from within the industry and gave me a better insight of their jobs through the shadowing opportunities that were provided. Being a part of this trip helped me to gain a better perspective on high performance or professional sports in general. It also provided me with a breakdown of the different sections of sports and what are the main components that help to run a successful professional organization such as an IMG Academy. Lastly, this trip also helped me to build some special bonds and friendships with other people that were also a part of this trip. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking of going because this is a great opportunity that will help to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students who are looking to build their career and increase their networks in the long run."
