My name is Morgan O’Donnell, I am a 22 year old from Easton, Massachusetts, 30 miles south of Boston. I am very excited to be part of the Sports Changes Lives Victory Scholar class of 2019. During this time, I will be studying at Griffith College in Dublin to earn my Masters of Science in International Business. Formerly, I studied Psychology with a concentration in the Brain, Body, and Cognition at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts. While there, I competed on the Assumption Women’s Basketball team. During my 4 year college career, we achieved a team goal by going to the NCAA tournament. I was elected as team captain by my teammates in my senior year. Some personal achievements includes being selected to NE-10 All-Conference teams in my junior and senior seasons and I am only the 24th player in team history to score over 1,000 points.
I would not be where I am today without the support of former coaches, teachers, teammates, and leaders. Basketball has done so much for me and I can’t wait to spread all the joy it has given me. I am so excited to start this new journey!
