Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni


Lauren Cox Morales, Spanish BA, Class of 2009

Why did you study Spanish?

I love the Spanish language and culture and want to use it to help people and to immerse myself more into the Spanish community.

How do you use Spanish now?

I work as a Recreational Therapist and Patient Advocate at a Mental and Behavioral Heath Hospital. In addition, I use my Spanish by translating initial family contact, family therapy sessions, and discharge for the therapists and nurses. I also married a man from Mexico and speak Spanish daily with him as well as with other Hispanic friends and people in the community.
