I'm an undergraduate Spanish/English double major with ultimate goals of working as a professional translator, and I'm looking forward to starting off as a freelance writer in both languages. In regards to creative writing, my poetry has been published in a local periodical called Revisions, and I have written several articles as well as edited submissions for my university's satirical student newspaper. I love both modern and classical literature, and much of my free time is absorbed with writing short stories and poetry.
I've been studying Spanish since grade school and it's definitely my "first love" in terms of language study, but I've also studied Mandarin, Japanese, German, Thai and French. While I might not remember how to ask where the bathroom is in Chinese, I did learn through my exploration of other tongues that every culture is constantly evolving and defining itself through its language; as such, I'm sincerely looking forward to my future in the translation field, and I hope to gain the experience of realistically applying my studies.
