Burke alumna one step closer to her dream career

From the many applicants for the highly competitive CosmoGirl! Project 2024 Internship program, only six winners were selected nationwide, and Melissa Owumi is one of them. A 2004 graduate of the Jeremiah E. Burke High School, Melissa is now a junior at Boston College, where she majors in communications and minors in women's studies. This summer, she will work in a joint internship with CosmoGirl magazine and the National Basketball Association (NBA) in New York to pursue her dream: "In the year 2024, I truly envision myself pacing up and down the sidelines of an NBA arena, as the head coach of a National Basketball Association franchise," said Melissa. "I will be one of several female coaches to revolutionize the representation of women in a male-dominated sports league."
