I started learning languages when I was 3 years old. I began with Spanish with my babysitter. I then started Russian in my freshman year of high school. My high school Russian teacher got me addicted to learning languages. Learning languages is something everyone should do. I live and breathe languages. I nearly mastered Russian in my first year of learning it. My Russian teacher then taught me some German. My girlfriend's mother is German and is my tutor for German. I'm most proud of my work translating news articles and subtitling videos. I find subtitling videos to be very fun. My interests include: languages, video games, and American soccer. My work routine is very rigorous. When I start working on a project. I love to work on it until it is done. I enjoy doing big projects the most. However, I also enjoy small short term projects. My accomplishment that I am most proud of is when my high school teacher awarded me with Exemplary Russian Student for 3 years in a row. I was the one who was most dedicated to the language. My life revolved around Russian in high school. I owe my success to my Russian teacher, Ms. Shamshyna.
