Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Lawren Mayo Class of 2020, Spanish BA with Teaching Licensure

Why did you study Spanish?

I studied Spanish with Teacher Licensure at UNCW because as a heritage speaker, I have a passion for my language and culture and wanted to share it with others as a Spanish teacher.

How do you use Spanish now?

I teach Spanish at Jonesboro High School in Jonesboro, Georgia, and participate by translating in community outreach programs in South Atlanta.
