Bio
Native English speaker proficient in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.

I grew up in Los Angeles and studied Spanish from a young age, and traveled extensively in Spain and Mexico. I scored a 5 on my AP exam and worked as a Spanish tutor for high school students. I continued Spanish language courses in history and music at one of the top liberal arts colleges in the US. Published poetry in the fourth volume of "Puro Cuento," Vassar College's Spanish-speaking community student literary and art magazine. Strong Spanish proficiency and love for the language.

I began studying Mandarin Chinese in college but was promoted to advanced courses due to my rapid proficiency. Studied and worked in Shanghai fall 2015. Intensive advanced Chinese coursework and immersion residential program. I interned at the Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy - projects included translation and development of primary school curriculum, and research and translation of case studies for the New Urbanization Council's government policy recommendation paper. Experience working and communicating with coworkers in English and Chinese on a daily basis. Currently finishing my thesis translation project of the Yue opera "Butterfly Dream" (蝴蝶梦) in satisfaction of my Chinese degree requirements. Variety of experience writing and translating Mandarin Chinese.
