LCUH Spotlights Jacob Clark, Spanish Major

Jacob Clark, Spanish Major

“When I started out in college and declared my Spanish major, I became quite worrisome that there weren't many career options for me. I thought interpreter, translator, and teacher were all this field had to offer me. However, after graduating, this degree opened more doors than I ever thought possible. Not just professionally, but personally as well. After becoming fluent, the world doubled in size. I have been fortunate in my travels. I studied abroad in Mexico my junior year. After graduating, I taught English in Spain for 2 years. More recently, I volunteered in Puerto Rico with All Hands and Hearts Smart Response. It was then that I decided I wanted to have a more direct impact on the Hispanic community so after much persistence, I now work for a non-profit called Su Casa Hispanic Center. It's very rewarding and something I feel passionate about on a daily basis. My time at EKU was so fundamental in understanding the struggles that immigrants face daily. I think it was there that I learned to view the world from a perspective other than my own. I was molded there in such a way that allowed me to continue to grow for decades to come.”
