ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - UCF women's soccer midfielder Megan Fish is having quite a summer break.
After traveling to St. Vincent and the Grenadines on a service trip with Knights Without Borders in early May, the South Carolina native is about to jet set once again, this time as an attendee of the 2014 O4H Summer Praxis Program in Greece.
She was accepted for inclusion to the professional training seminar in Athens and ancient Olympia from June 28-July 8.
The 2014 O4H Summer Praxis Program was implemented by Olympism4Humanity Alliance - a global consortium of prominent world leading conflict resolution, global health, international development, global citizenship, disability and human-centered Olympism legacy experts and institutions ( olympism4humanity.com).
Now in its second year after its start in 2013, it is the first professional training opportunity solely focused on Olympic value dissemination as a tool for social change.
This year's summit is comprised of a total of 45 participants from Botswana, Canada, Cyprus, Greece, Japan, South Africa, Sudan and the United States. Of those 45, a total of nine are students ranging from high school to doctoral candidates. Fish is the only current NCAA student-athlete, though she is joined by fellow U.S. collegians from Illinois, UC-Santa Barbara, George Mason and Louisville.
Fish, a redshirt junior, started in 14 of 21 games during last year's championship season and was responsible for scoring the game-winning goals against Florida Gulf Coast and USF in back-to-back matches.
