Sr. Modern Language Specialist & Lead Presenter
In My Words:
My passion for modern language stems from the way they connect us with people of different cultures on a deeper level. Languages break down the barriers that confine each of us to our own tiny world.
I grew up in the U.S., so I’ve always felt somewhat disconnected from my Indian heritage. When I visited my family for the first time in Bangalore and Calcutta, I was able to begin bridging the cultural disconnect between my personal and ancestral history. The time I spent with my grandmother—learning her recipes in her kitchen, attempting to converse in broken Bengali through laughter—will always be one of my favorite memories.
