Hello! I am a new translator on the scene ready to practice, get experience, and learn more about the world I live in. I am very excited to be apart of this community!
I am from the southeastern part of United States and have been living in Mexico for 6 years. I am not a permanent resident. I love Spanish and Mexican culture (music, food, movies, the people). I feel that I identify with both cultures, however my identity is still predominantly rooted in that of the United States. 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 am now trying to pursue a career in translation (SPA – ENG), which is my passion. I love reading about current events and mixing that with a love of writing and words. I am excited to begin this new chapter of my life!
