Philadelphia, PA - Highly scouted women's soccer prospect Claire Reynolds stated that she scheduled her interview to be a Barista with Starbucks for 1:00 pm on Thursday, so as not to interfere with the NWSL Draft.
Expected to go in the first 15 picks of the draft, Reynolds stated that she knows she can't depend upon the league to provide a financial future for herself and is planning for multiple career options.
"If I don't get on the United States national team in a few years I'm not going to make any money," stated Reynolds to The Nutmeg News. "So I'm going to ensure that I'm positioned to make money during the NWSL season so I can afford a call-up if I get one, and this way I can have a secondary income stream when I get tired of trying to live off $15,000 for the year."
Reynolds states that she has already prepared her body for eating whatever food is available with the money that she has left after state taxes, government taxes, housing and bills leave her with less than $15 a day.
"It's important to be flexible. I need to ensure that I can have a career with Starbucks and I'm going against people that graduated from La Salle with a degree in English, so it won't be easy."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this when Reynolds fails to get the job as she doesn't have enough coffee experience.
