Treasure Goddard, C’2019, Lands Dream Job at Twitter

September 2019

Treasure GoddardTreasure Goddard, C’2019, has landed her dream job. A month after graduation, the computer science major moved to San Francisco to participate in Twitter’s associate product manager program. The mission of the rotational program, which began in 2016, is to develop the next generation of product leaders. Those selected for the program receive training, mentorship and rotating assignments with various product teams at Twitter. Her technical background, along with her personal interests, are what Goddard believes made her a top candidate for the program.

“Twitter is seeking product managers with a technical background, who can work with engineers, designers and other functions to figure out, creatively and collaboratively, what teams should do next,” she said. “My time at Spelman definitely helped me to reach my goals by constantly providing me with amazing opportunities and giving me the push to dream big!”

“During these coming mind-opening, socially engaging and intellectually exciting years of my life, I hope to create as much as I can.”

Throughout her life, Goddard’s creativity has always opened doors for her. In the midst of a sometimes tumultuous upbringing, she found the joy of self-expression through the YouTube channel she created while in middle school — a place where she knew “someone, somewhere in the world was listening.” Goddard used her channel to share with the world her experimentation with film editing software, mastering her camera and learning the power of her own voice.

Her next four years at the Academy for Careers in Television and Film catapulted Goddard deeper into her love for film production and provided an opportunity for her to participate in a highly selective program, NYC Generation Tech, a program that opened up a whole new world.

“Through Gen-Tech I had discovered my true passion; technology-entrepreneurship. Not only was I able to take my speaking skills to a professional level, but I was also still able to create my own works.” In Gen-Tech, Goddard founded Orgster, a mobile application useful for helping students get homework done in transit without the need for papers and heavy books. She also went on to participate in Girls Who Code, and interned at Learning Curve, an organization for teen entrepreneurship.

Goddard is hopeful and excited about the creative opportunities that will arise for her as she enters this next phase of her life.
