Shannon Quinn | Athlete Network Intern @ Athlete Network
"Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose."
BACKGROUND
After ski racing since age 6, I continued my career at Boston College. For my first two years at Boston College, I thrived as one of the top female athletes on my team and among the top 30 female collegiate alpine racers. My junior year, I suffered my fifth concussion and found it in my best interest to stop racing. This was the most difficult decision I have made during my time at Boston College. I was scared; being a student-athlete was how I defined myself. I did not want to lose touch with my team or the sport of ski racing. I took it upon myself to start my own social media position. I now maintain updated Facebook and Instagram accounts for BC Skiing and travel with the team. I am currently working on creating a blog for the team as well. I am extremely happy with the progress I have made with this social media position. I found success with this role by setting goals. I wanted the Facebook page to accrue 200 followers within a month and I wanted the Instagram account to have at least 100 followers within a week. I surpassed my goals. The Facebook page now has over 380 followers and the Instagram account has over 150. I am driven, creative, extremely self-motivated, and am always looking for new ways to succeed.
