Modern Language Specialist
In My Words:
One of my favorite quotes states that “A different language is a different vision of life.” I truly believe that learning new languages can open up endless possibilities for people to experience life with a fresh lens. Being able to connect with others, in my opinion, is one of the most rewarding aspects of the human experience. I grew up in a very small Texas town that didn’t offer many opportunities to have different cultural experiences, so my love for languages started in high school when my high school Spanish teacher opened up that opportunity for me to experience the world through a different lens. She taught us not only how to speak the language, but also to appreciate every aspect of that culture including the food, music, and traditions. My love for languages has continued to this very day and inspires my travels to different parts of the world.
