When he’s not busy working towards his degree in Business with a concentration in Sports Marketing, Charles Hitechew enjoys traveling.
Traveling is one of the best ways to break out of your comfort zone and see the world around you while experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, and engaging in new activities and practices. It allows us the opportunity to broaden our scope of understanding, expand our view of the world, and learn more about our place within it. Of his favorite places to travel, Charles Hitechew most enjoys relaxing on a beach or unwinding by the ocean. He makes the journey to Hilton Head whenever he has the chance, where he loves to pass the time.
Through travel, Charles has a chance to exercise one of his personal strengths: resilience. Charles has always valued his ability to adapt well in the face of challenge and adversity, and when he’s out in the world, traveling to places he’s never been, he must rely on these innate abilities. Charles has also worked to be flexible and realistic in his daily life, approaching every instance with a level head and the ability to contextualize both the good and the bad, helping him from swinging too high or too low.
Currently, in his academic career, Charles Hitechew is attending Duquesne University’s Palumbo-Donahue School of Business. Here, he is majoring in Business with a concentration in Sports Marketing. Charles has been preoccupied with sports for most of his life. Whether he was playing them as an athlete himself, studying stats, or learning about athletes, Charles has been engrossed with sports since his childhood. Following graduation, Charles Hitechew has his sights set on a career within the sports industry, with a particular eye on sports management or marketing where he can work with a professional team or a collegiate athletic department.
Prior to enrolling at Duquesne University, Charles Hitechew attended Bridgton Academy in Bridgton, Maine, an all-male preparatory academy where he played postgraduate level baseball and learned how to be a productive, successful student. Before attending Bridgton, Charles wasted a lot of his academic time, not understanding how important it was to manage his time and plan a path for success for his future. Now, he is equipped with the tools and has honed his skills and knowledge to better prepare for and execute his future.
