Louella Mahabir · September, 2011

Well, I'm 26 yrs old, I live in Trinidad and foreign languages is one of my passions as well as reading, writing, meeting new people and travelling. I hold a BA in spanish/french from the University of the West Indies and I appreciate being able to see (and participate in) the work that Global voices is doing. I have always been a believer in spreading the word, and Global voices has me in awe of what they are achieving!
