About Matt Herceg - Summer Intern

Hi guys, my name is Matt Herceg and I'm a junior college student at Virginia Tech studying Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise. I'm super hype to be interning with Bike the US for MS this summer as a route leader for the Northern Tier and wake up every day counting down the days until the trip. 

Although I have never done a trip quite as demanding as this one, I am a person that is open to anything and that absolutely loves traveling, the outdoors, exercise, and helping people, all of which Bike the US for MS perfectly encompasses. For a little while I had been looking into internship opportunities, but none seemed like a great fit for me. I wanted to do something in the medical field in which I could help people, but wasn't quite sure what type of medical job I was looking for. This is when I had begun to think about going into the non-profit sector. In the process of looking, I went on an awesome 8 day western spring break road trip with my friends through the states of California, Arizona, and Utah while camping each night at different places such as in Yosemite National Park. After returning from this trip, I was left lusting for more of the outdoors and life on the road and didn't want to end up in a possible internship where I would be stationary and working at a desk a lot of the summer. Coincidentally, the day I returned from the trip, I got an email to apply for an internship Bike the US for MS. I immediatly hopped on to this opportunity and knew that it was meant to be for this summer. 

I look forward to a great summer with everyone and can't wait to help support such a great cause to fight against MS!
