Senior Speaker 2021: Trinity Monteiro, Sport Management
May 11, 2021
Trinity Monteiro, who is from New Bedford, Mass., plans to take a little time to travel after graduation before starting her summer internship with the NBA.
What clubs or organizations have you been most involved with?
WISM [Women in Sport Management] will always have a special place in my heart, as it was the first ever club I held a leadership position with, even for a short period of time. Then I went on to join the Pi Iota chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., on campus, a historically black Greek letter organization, where I have served as my chapter's treasurer and our council's head of events and president.
What was your favorite class at Isenberg?
It is so hard to choose a favorite class in Isenberg, but it is no coincidence all of them were within McCormack. Sociology of Sport with Todd Crosset changed the game for me. Any class with Professor Emily Must—she just made me love it because she was leading it. And then it was a privilege to be in the first ever classes for Diversity in Sport and Women in Business.
What would you say was your best experience in college?
I simply cannot pick one experience in college that was the best. Studying abroad would be a huge competitor if it had not ended short due to a world pandemic. But I will say it was truly the people who made my experience. The McCormack Department, my RA staff in Prince/Crampton, and my Greek life family are just a few groups I share my favorite memories with.
What piece of advice would you offer to an incoming first-year Isenberg student in your department?
I would tell any incoming first-year Isenberg student to follow your passion, not just a paycheck, and remember you should come first in all that you do.
