Future career aspirations: My academic and professional career has thus far prepared me for my future career as a Teacher of a Second Language. I plan to continue working in billingual education and TESOL to foster diversity and inclusion in language learning. Encouraging others to learn second languages is a passion for me and I believe it can create empathy and greater cultural awareness when you build an understanding of another persons language.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: Out of many goals for my time abroad the top 3 would be firstly, to speak Spanish more fluently and to expand my professional vocabulary. Secondly, I hope to learn more about the country of Argentina and its history in Latin America, and lastly, I would like to learn how to cook a few authentic Argentinian foods.
