Prospective Audiologist, ASL/Spanish Educator, Spanish/English Translator, Linguist
I'm passionate and fascinated about/by languages, specifically those in the Romance/Neo-Latin family. I try to study, learn, and compare a little bit of every language possible, simple vocabulary mostly.
I found out my dream university didn't accept me; it just means I'll apply again. In the meantime, I'll be working on obtaining an associates degree in Spanish, I already have an associates degree for ASL. I still have a long way, but in time I'll achieve all my goals.
I plan to major in Communication Sciences and Disorders, or Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences, with a focus in Audiology. Also, major in Linguistics with a focus in Applied Linguistics; to then teach languages and translate from one language to another.
My desire is to teach ASL to Hearing people, English to Spanish-users, and Spanish to users of other languages. I also desire to become a Spanish/English translator.
Much later in the future, I will apply for the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures from Chicago.
