2024

As a combined major in Spanish and International Affairs, Ford someday hopes to strengthen the connection between Spanish-speaking countries and the U.S.

Ford’s Path

“I highly recommend sticking with language. I know too many people who drop it after high school and regret it because they could have used it in various situations. I believe sticking with Spanish is setting me up for success post-grad because the world is becoming more global every day and I find that it is more essential than ever to be bilingual. Spanish-speaking is growing in popularity, as it is currently the 4th most spoken language in the world. When it comes to finding a job, if an employer likes two candidates, but one is able to speak multiple languages and one cannot, then they are going to choose the candidate that is multilingual. In the future, I want to be able to use my Spanish skills by working with or in Spanish-speaking countries.”
