Well, hello there.

Hi World,

I wanted to t1208973_10200655737976132_1877093911_n.jpgake a moment to introduce myself and welcome you to my blog. My name is Chrissy Camilleri. I’m a senior at Saint Mary’s College of California in Moraga. It’s small, it’s breathtakingly beautiful, it’s the best place I could have possibly chosen to spend my undergraduate career. 

I am currently in my last semester as a Communication student, and graduation is just an arm’s stretch away. I feel like my entire time in college has prepared me for this final time as an undergrad. Through the strong support of my college, my family, and friends, I have been able to accomplish one of my biggest goals– working for the San Francisco Giants.

I will never forget my first Giants game. I was 9, on the upper deck, and seated next to my brother. Mike, a lifelong baseball enthusiast, tried his very hardest to describe the fundamentals of the game to me. Nine-year-old Chrissy politely nodded along, to mock a sense of understanding. Yet, with a child’s attention span, my interest quickly switched from my brother’s voice to the large sail boats gliding along the bay on the other side of AT&T Park’s walls. He was mid-sentence when I called out, “HEY, LOOK AT THAT BOAT!” I was a lost cause.

Fast forward quite some time, and I finally began to understand why people dedicated their lives to the love of the game. I found myself in the bleachers multiple times during the summer– placed right in the middle of my Camilleri clan. Every time I emerged from the dark tunnel and was greeted by the warm sunshine of San Francisco, the bright green of the outfield, I felt an overwhelming sensation of home. I wanted to stay forever.

Beginning college, I always thought it would be so incredible to work for the Giants. I knew it was a long stretch, but I thought that if I told enough people my dream, that somehow and someway it could miraculously happen. In 2016, I wrote this on my year’s wish list.

Well, to my amazement and luck, it happened (twice actually). During the summer of 2016, I was hired as a Junior Giants Ambassador for a league in Citrus Heights. Then, in December, I applied and was selected to be the Junior Giants Intern under the Giants Community Fund.

Every day I get to go “home” to AT&T Park. I have my own badge, my own cubicle, a @sfgiants.com email. I feel like I have found the spot I am supposed to be in, even if it is only for ten months. I have to pinch myself every once in awhile to remind10957895_10203925369834885_2703691044216998402_n myself that this is what I worked so hard for.

So with this all being said, I am keeping this blog to document my day to day life as an intern for the San Francisco Giants. I will describe some of the projects I am working on, the events I am preparing for, the people I get to meet, and the once in a lifetime experience that I will embark on. Most importantly, through this blog, I will have a documentation of my growth– professionally and fundamentally.

So, click follow, and join me on my dream train.
