Ever wondered what the day-to-day realities of a Division 1 college athlete are? Looking for tips on how to apply for a U.S. sports scholarship to continue your sport at a high level while pursuing a quality university education? SSN, in partnership with EducationUSA, is presenting a free live-streamed presentation on “A Day in the Life of a Female Student Athlete” on Monday, June 15 at 3pm.
The panel, facilitated by SSN founder Chenjerai Katanda, will feature three Division I female Zimbabwean student athletes who are home for holidays from studying in the United States. The three will share their experiences at the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section auditorium on the 7th floor of the Gold Bridget of Eastgate.
The panelists include one rower and two hockey players; however, their experiences and exposure to the world of women’s university Division 1 level sport is applicable to all who are considering pursuing the path of a university student athlete.
Anne Stack, who attended Chisipite Senior School, is entering her third year at the University of Pennsylvania where she captains the women’s rowing team. Jordyn Clipstone, formerly of Hellenic Academy, is a celebrated goal keeper at Villanova University in Philadelphia, where she earned several accolades in her first year of university hockey, including being named Rookie of the Year. Fariyah Omarshah, who was at Arundel School, began playing Division 1 hockey for Sienna College in upstate New York this past January.
We hope you can join us in person for this free and open to the public presentation, but if not in Harare, you can check in live at http://vault.ssn.co.zw/ssn-zim-tv/ or watch the presentation later here on SSN.
