Fall 2021

Type of Culminating Activity

Student research paper


Being a student athlete myself, I found this project would not only benefit me but would benefit my current teammates. What I have noticed is missing in the world of a student athlete is financial literacy programs and what to do after sports whether you make it professionally or not. Using my Capstone Project, I will be using an Innovative approach, emotional intelligence, and creative thinking broken down through workshops to help my fellow student athletes. I am going to meet with many professional contacts in the fields of finance and career-planning. This will go along with researching peer-reviewed sources in order to create workshop resources to help student-athletes succeed after sports. I will also be interviewing several contacts (retired NBA players) in which I have been coached and mentored by as another source.
