Gabby Curry says she was “blessed” not only to win a volleyball national championship at Kentucky but also able to do what she did academically.

“I was able to graduate with my degree in business management in 2 1/2 year and then able to finish my MBA,” Curry said. “It was hard. I was not expecting to be playing volleyball in the spring when I was finishing my MBA. I was expecting the spring to be an open time period.”

Not that she is complaining because COVID extended the volleyball season and ended with UK winning the national title, the first in school history.

“I was looking for an internship and God put the right opportunity there at the right time for me,” Curry said. “I got an internship with Boston Scientific. It’s a great company with amazing people. They worked with me and let me start my internship in the spring. I was working about 30 hours a week and playing volleyball and finishing my one class.

“The spring was very hectic  but it was also probably the most fulfilling time of my life. I have never really known what I wanted to do with my life or what my dream career would be. But I can’t wait for all that lies ahead now.”
