Alumni Spotlight: Charlotte Moran '11
I majored in Russian and minored in Criminal Justice in May 2011. I am originally
from Ballston Spa, New York. I am currently living in Guangzhou, Guangdong Providence,
While I was at Ferrum I was the Vice President of the Russian club and worked with
theater productions doing the lights for shows directed by Professor Wayne Bowman.
During the summer of 2010 I worked at a summer camp in Ukraine near the Black Sea.
I finished all necessary classes and credits to be able to finish school a semester
early in December. After graduation in May, I started working as a youth activities
counselor for Disney Cruise Line aboard the Disney Dream from 2011 until 2013. While
aboard the Disney Dream, I was offered a job with Disney English. Disney English
is a English as a foreign language learning company in China. I teach English to
children ages 3-11 in an immersive environment.
The best thing about Ferrum College is the teachers. Professor Wayne Bowman and Dr.
Sasha Saari taught me so much both in class and out of class. I wouldn't be the person
I am today without them.
I am proud of Ferrum College because it gave me the opportunities to learn new things.
If I had not gone to Ferrum I might have never studied Russian. Without studying
Russian I would never have done all of the traveling that I have done since leaving
