How is it possible to be 20 years old and already looking at the possibility of having your work published in an upcoming issue of National Geographic? All it takes, based on the experience of Anderson Roberts, is seizing the opportunity to co-author a research paper with a renowned professor studying 3.8-million-year-old unfossilized Pliocene wood from the Arctic. The importance of the research lies in how it aids in understanding how plant species have adapted to changing climates. Obviously, to reach this level of success took a lot of hard work and some smart decisions. Another such decision Anderson made was attending Yale University and majoring in ethics, politics, and economics. Anderson plans to pursue a career in international commodities trading.

If you know a successful Gadsden City alumnus who is thriving somewhere around the world, we would love to include them in the Our Titan Family is Going Places campaign.

They can upload a short video (less than two minutes) and a photo here. The video should be an introduction of themselves, a synopsis of what they do in their career, and the coolest work-related experience they’ve had so far.

Make sure the video is between :30 and 2 minutes. The photo should be of just them with a background that reflects what they are doing in their career. They should be sure to use their name (first and last) as the file name for the photo and the video.
Along with the photo and video, they’ll need to complete the short survey here.
