Operation Analyst


EMILIA RENZI erenzi@smith.edu Campus Address: Box 0000, 1 Chapin Way, Northampton, MA 01063 (413) 585-1234 Permanent Address: 3478 Mango Ridge Road, Ocala, FL 34471 December 8, 2013 Cat Goddard Assistant Director REAL Kids/Harlem RBI 333 East 100th Street New York, NY 10029 Dear Ms. Goddard: I am a first year student at Smith College pleased to submit my application for a teacher/coach position with the 2014 REAL Kids/Harlem RBI summer program which I saw in our Career Development Office internship database. With strong interests in youth development and team sports, I am drawn to this position as an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of inner city youth. I have extensive experience working with children in athletic and arts settings. As Assistant Coach of the Marion County Youth Softball League, I designed non-competitive beginner practices that motivated each player to strive for her personal best. As the girls’ skill level, self-esteem, and teamwork grew, several reported having greater success in school. Previously, as Arts Leader for Fine Arts for Kids in Miami, I taught arts and crafts to Hispanic youth and initiated cost-free activities that enriched their appreciation of art. As public schools are increasingly cutting funding for arts and sports programs, I am eager to help close the gap for these children however I can. As a teacher/coach with REAL Kids/Harlem RBI I hope to share with my students the important lessons about teamwork, leadership, and motivation I’ve learned from softball. I owe my academic success in large part to the committed coaches I had since joining my first softball team at age six. I am excited by the prospect of inspiring your students to play, learn, and grow this summer. I am available at your convenience for an in-person or phone interview, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Emilia Renzi
