If you missed out on the NextPlay Intern Takeover last week, fear not! You can still watch it here to learn a bit more about rising graduate student and University of the Incarnate Word swimmer Marissa Watters, who takes us through a typical day in her life including swimming lessons, NextPlay work, and more.

If you have any interest in sport management, the business world, and what it looks like to graduate and pursue an MBA amid a global pandemic, read on to read more about what Watters is doing to prepare for her future!

  • Watters missed out on an internship in Valencia, Spain this summer due to COVID-19… but she gives some tips and tricks on how to manage time right now and make the most of each circumstance and opportunity you’re given!
  • Watters (and her twin sister) are keeping up on training although the future of sport is uncertain at the moment… tune in to see what kind of workouts Watters is doing right now (and the kids she’s helping learn how to swim!)
  • Ever wondered how Excel works and how to structure a complex set of information like a 52-week curriculum plan? Say no more, and watch Watters’ takeover!
  • Lastly, watch the takeover to gain some insight and advice pertaining to SAAC, how to choose a major, and what this summer has taught Watters thus far!

Stay tuned for future takeovers, and don’t forget to give our NextPlay takeovers a like, comment and view as the start of a new school year approaches. If you would be interested in showing off your day in the life as a student-athlete, let us know!
