As TCU’s commencement ceremony quickly approaches, we will be featuring current TCU seniors to show their plans for after graduation. With the wealth of professional opportunities available to students in Dallas-Fort Worth, across the United States, and around the world, TCU graduates are truly doing amazing things!
Nate Anderson is a senior International Marketing major with a Spanish minor from Fort Collins, Colorado. On June 1, Nate will be moving to Santo Domingo, the capital city of the Dominican Republic to work with Esperanza International. Esperanza provides micro-financing services to low-income citizens in the Dominican to help them generate income, education, and health to help their financial stability and their overall self-worth. In Nate’s position, he will be promoting and representing Esperanza before donors, associates, and the public. Some of his responsibilities will be managing website content and social networking, creating reports regarding the stories of the associates, providing visitors with information and helping them to translate and understand the operations, among other tasks. When asked why this position interested him, Nate said:
“Initially, it fell perfectly in line with what my focus has been in college — I’m a Marketing major with an International Emphasis and a Spanish minor, and I spent a semester abroad my junior year in Seville, Spain. It was impossible to pass up an opportunity to gain marketing experience in an international setting as well as finally become fluent in Spanish. Beyond the career opportunities, however, I felt called to join Esperanza’s mission. I felt that it would be extremely beneficial for my personal growth as a person to go out and faithfully serve a community that truly needs help in its impoverished communities. I am excited to learn about a different culture and do my best to make a difference in some people’s lives!”
Several TCU students have actually had opportunities with Esperanza in recent years, so Nate is definitely continuing the legacy of Horned Frogs embracing the global community!
