Hello! I'm Kelley and I have been volunteering with GV for over a year now and I have loved every minute of it! It has given me the chance to hone my craft, get experience, and learn more about the world I live in. Being apart of this community has been so far a great experience.
I am from the southeastern United States and have been living in Mexico for 8 years. I love Spanish and Mexican culture (music, food, movies, the people). I came to Puebla, Mexico to study my Masters in Applied Linguistics. I was an ESL teacher for 5 years at the elementary level (students ranging from 6 – 9 years old) and I have now been pursing a career in translation (SPA – ENG) for over a year now, which is my passion. I have just completed the Spanish-English Translation Certificate Program from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. I love reading about current events and mixing that with a love of writing and words.
