Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Skyla Hill Class of 2018, Spanish BA

Why did you study Spanish?

I had previous exposure and practice with Spanish and wanted to continue learning and maintaining my language skills.

How do you use Spanish now?

I work for a nonprofit organization called East Coast Migrant Head Start Project. We are a Head Start organization that serves the children and families of migrant farm workers all along the eastern coast of the U.S. We have more than 50 Head Start centers from Florida to Pennsylvania that open seasonally to serve the children as the migrant workers move from state to state for the seasonal agricultural work. I work in the corporate office assisting with Spanish translation and development of documents, recruitment materials, memos, manuals and projects that are used at the centers.
