A dream come true for local student
11 August 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
We understand that not every young person that the Club engages with in its community necessarily dreams of a career in football, but our strong links to other industries can open the doors to a multitude of different careers – as one local lad has found out.
Chukwuemeka Ihenacho is a student at Tottenham University Technical College and recently won a Club-supported competition to win an internship with our Technical Partner, Under Armour.
He was tasked with designing an item of sports apparel and presenting to an expert panel for the ultimate reward of spending time at their HQ in Baltimore, Maryland, shadowing senior staff.
Speaking on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, ‘Chuk’ said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Under Armour and getting a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on. It’s been one of the most exciting experiences of my life.”
