This year, I laughed and/until I cried, I won some (games) and lost some (of my marbles), but more importantly I grew as a person. Particularly here in Galway, I was able build relationships with my teams as a coach, accepted with open arms by Joe Coughlan & family and the Titans, made history with the Mystics, and shared the journey with the coolest group I could ask for, my fellow Scholars. And the year isn’t even finished…
Recently, more and more people have asked me if I enjoyed my time in Ireland, but a simple ‘yes’ just doesn’t answer the question. This year was just like getting on the highest, fastest roller coaster at Cedar Point or Six Flags.; the anticipation to get on nearly kills you, there are highs and lows that’ll plunge your heart into your stomach and when it’s all over you’re filled with breathless exhilaration from surviving it all. Not to mention the great pictures that prove it.
I don’t know what your year will entail if you become a Victory Scholar–and that’s half the fun, everyone’s experience is different, like Halloween candy–but if any of the above interests you, I think you owe it to yourself to apply.
