I am currently working on becoming a freelance translator for Spanish into English translations. As far as I can remember, I've always loved studying languages, especially grammar and culture (it's an odd combo, I know). In undergrad, I earned my B.A. in International Business and Spanish (although it felt like I also minored in English, with all of the papers I had to write!). I am currently working on getting my M.L.S. in Global Affairs, with a concentration on English and Spanish translation. I think the world is full of amazing stories in all languages, and I hope to expand my linguistic skills so I can see more of them.
