Getting to Know Sean Leahy
We wanted everyone to have the opportunity to get to know Sean Leahy before his internship comes to a close, so we asked him 12 questions:
1. What have you enjoyed most in your time with Gen Z?
The endless Seinfeld references that continue to sail over my head-aka the overall workplace environment, in general.
2. If you were a bird, which type of bird would you be and why?
A New Orleans Pelican, fierce but majestic – deadly combo.
3. What is your favorite sorbet?
Classic strawberry sorbet – add alcohol to taste.
4. What is the biggest takeaway that you have learned since joining the team?
Project self-confidence and double, triple check everything and anything.
5. We know you played baseball in college, if you could go pro in any other sport, which would you pick?
Basketball – it’s fast paced and has always been my favorite sport to compete in. And, in my opinion, a true test of your athletic ability.
6. Who is the best driver in the office?
(Answer redacted due to it being wrong)
7. What is the hardest question you have ever been asked during an interview?
Hardest question was when I was interviewing to land my first internship. It was, “Rate on a scale of 1 to 10 how weird you are.” Confused and thrown off, I answered “I only get weird on the weekends.” Thankfully, he was amused with my response.
8. If you were stranded on an island and could only have 2 of your belongings, which would you choose and why?
A magazine and a “How to Survive on a Deserted Island” manual.
9. What is the coolest thing you have worked on at Gen Z?
The coolest thing has been getting the opportunity to travel to all of the Minor/Major League stadiums.

Traveling across South America, running a non-profit that focuses on establishing baseball leagues for underprivileged children.
11. Favorite movie?
I’m a big fan of the Back to the Future series. Plus Shawshank, Fight Club, Blow – I also have a soft spot for classic Disney flicks (ex: Jungle Book, Aladdin)
12. What is next on your bucket list?
To reside in New York City for a period of my life.
