This summer at Under Armour has been eye opening in so many ways. I’ve had the opportunity to meet different people with various interests and backgrounds—which I’ve loved. Every Rookie and UA teammate is passionate about what they do, being able to spend the summer with people who push boundaries and are consistently looking to excel is an awesome experience.
During my internship I’m working with the On-Field Sourcing Team. The entire On-Field department is responsible for getting collegiate and international athletes, coaches, and trainers their uniforms. Being a student athlete from Notre Dame on the Women’s Soccer team, I’ve grown up wearing and playing with uniforms my entire life. I thought I knew what this world was going to be like before starting the internship—I was wrong. For starters, the process of making a uniform takes about three years—two and a half years longer than what I originally thought. It is a meticulous process where everyone involved is committed to getting every last detail perfect. At the end of the day, the Under Armour logo is on every jersey and it is essential that the product looks great and performs well for the customer.
