Profiles in Passion: Brigid Sabine '18

Would you work for shoes? Marywood graphic design student, Brigid Sabine ’18 did just that during an internship she secured while studying abroad in Italy. Brigid, who is from Auburn, N.Y., graduates from Marywood in May with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. In the Spring 2017 Semester, she took advantage of the study abroad program at Studio Arts College International (SACI) in Florence, Italy, deemed as “Marywood’s Italian Campus for outstanding art students” by the Department of Visual Arts.

While in Italy, Brigid stayed in an apartment near SACI. On a typical day, she would wake up and go to the city’s central market, where “they have the best of everything.” There, she would eat breakfast, and then attend classes at SACI. In her spare time, she would shop, go to cafes, or just go for a walk to explore the city. “There are tons of things to do,” she said. She described Florence as an “old world” small city, yet easy to acclimate and easy to experience by walking. “The Duomo was amazing,” she said about Florence’s famous landmark. Her favorite place was the Piazzali Michelangelo, where there was a scenic overlook and live music.

How did an internship that paid in shoes enter the picture? Brigid said, “I walked into it.” She and a friend had been exploring the side streets of Florence in an area known for fashion, and they happened upon a store named Viajiyu (“via” meaning “road” in Italian and “jiyu” meaning “freedom” in Japanese), which translates into “The Freedom Road.” It is a company created by women, for women. At Viajiyu, women of all ages and backgrounds can customize their own handcrafted, luxury flats. Once inside, they connected with the woman who owned it, Nicole Still, an American who has lived, worked, and started businesses all over the world.

After interviewing, Brigid was asked to work on the company’s website. She said the company is progressive and creative, utilizing talent of all kinds to bring its vision to fruition. “The company is interested in and can find work for students from many disciplines, not just art. They had business, accounting, math, and marketing majors working for them. Interns are given a deadline for a project, and then work on an honor system and track their hours as they complete it.” Viajiyu pays its interns by allowing them to earn shoes. Some might wonder if this is a fair exchange, but Brigid emphasized that these handcrafted Italian beauties can cost from $400-$800 a pair! She said, “It was absolutely worth it to work for these shoes!” The Florence-based company offered Brigid per diem work once she returned to the U.S., and she still remotely works on projects for their website. She exclaimed, “The shoes are worth it!”

Profiles in Passion: Julie Dougherty ’12 Mentors and Coaches Student-Athletes

Julie Dougherty ’12 thought she wanted to be a teacher. She got her degree from Marywood in Elementary Education in 2012, but realized towards the end of her undergraduate career that she didn’t want to teach in a classroom. Dr. Mary Jo Gunning, Marywood’s Athletics Director, posed the possibility to Julie’s parents that perhaps the exemplary student-athlete should consider a career in sports administration. Julie, a field hockey standout at Marywood, had not previously considered this type of occupation, but she knew she could apply her solid education knowledge to a sports administration career. “I have so many great memories from my playing career at Marywood,” she said. “One of my favorites comes from my freshman year, which was the first time in 10 seasons that the field hockey team had a winning season. It was an honor serving as a captain of the field hockey from my sophomore year through my senior year, as we returned to the CSAC playoffs two more times.” 

Julie went on to Temple and earned her Master of Science degree in Sports Business. She says that the valuable knowledge she gained as an education major at Marywood applied well to coaching and sports administration—it’s just that the chosen learning experience is different; she is teaching on the field instead of in front of a classroom. While Julie was pursuing her master’s degree, she thought she might want to fundraise for a Division I school, but discovered after several rounds of interviews for these types of jobs that her heart was leading her in a different direction. “I missed field hockey,” she said. This led Julie to seek employment coaching the sport she knew and loved so well. She began working as a part-time Assistant Field Hockey coach at Marywood.

Additionally, Dr. Gunning and Casey Manning, Field Hockey Head Coach, secured an NCAA grant so that Julie could work full-time at Marywood as the Assistant Coordinator of Student-Athlete Affairs. This position, made possible through the NCAA Ethnic Minorities and Women’s Internship Program, allows Julie to work with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee on campus, which focuses on athletic success, academic achievement, and community service. Their work includes service events and programming for NCAA Division III week. Julie also mentors three Division III student-athletes who are ethnic minorities and/or women in the Immersion Program. She calls the athletes monthly, stays in touch via email and texts, and gives advice on what helped her to find entry-level employment in the sports administration field.
