With both of Alexander Anderson’s parents being first-generation immigrants to the United States, his mom being born in Mexico and his dad in South Korea, financial stability has always been a hardship on his family. Luckily, Anderson said he has been blessed enough to be able to attend OU and work toward a successful career to support himself and his loved ones. Navigating through college has been tough for Anderson, and he has had to work to pay off his tuition and college expenses as well as take out loans to make ends meet. However, through hard work and guidance from friends across various campus organizations, Anderson has been able to maintain a 4.0 GPA and have an amazing time at OU. His success in terms of academics has allowed him to receive many scholarships and also secure an internship with Northrop Grumman. Anderson said he had an amazing experience interning with Northrop Grumman and was able to grow professionally and as an individual, learning awesome information about the business management side of the aerospace industry. Anderson will be returning to Northrop in the summer of 2021 for a full-time position and will be working toward an ultra-successful career. Anderson would like to attribute his success to his family, friends, mentors, and campus organizations that have influenced him such as: The multicultural business program, Sigma Lambda Beta, Delta Sigma Pi, and The OU Real Estate Club.
