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."
