Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Spencer Bloom Class of 2017 - Spanish BA

Why did you study Spanish?

I saw the Spanish major as an opportunity to gain a lifelong skill while studying under some of the most accomplished and dedicated faculty at UNCW. Indeed, studying Spanish at UNCW has unlocked countless doors for me.

How do you use Spanish now?

I use Spanish every day in my work at a non-profit advocating for Latinx in our state (El Pueblo). I get to help folks understand their rights, encourage them to engage in our political process, and use Spanish media to speak to our community—all thanks to the Spanish I learned at UNCW.
