Brooke’s Homerun

ZTA loves baseball, but Brooke Jenkins might be its biggest fan! We’re so proud of her and all of her accomplishments. Check out her story below!

This past summer I had the opportunity to intern for the Houston Astros. During my internship I served as the intern for the Retail and Merchandise Department. During my internship I got to learn and experience first hand everything that happens in this department. From running the ten team stores in the stadium, to sitting in on meetings about buying new merchandise, helping unload merchandise in the warehouse and everything in between. I had the privilege to work on several projects throughout the summer. I was able to work with the Authentication team and work on a project for that part of our department. I was able to help with a Spring Training Review, a Retail Marketing Investment Fund and Budget project, and was able to help create the Organizations Newsletter over the summer. Since the end of my internship in August, due to school, I have kept in close touch with my department and the organization.

During the teams post season run I was asked to come back and help as the team hosted three home World Series Games. This was such an incredible honor to be asked to come help my department work these games. I had the time of my life working for the team I grew up supporting in the World Series. It honestly has been the experience of a lifetime and I am so thankful to The Houston Astros for the opportunities they have given me. What a team, what an organization and what a season! I am so happy I got to be a part of it! Go Houston and Go Astros!!
