Bio
I've been studying Arabic for the past 14 years of my life. There's no doubt at this point that it's a true passion of mine. I even recently decided to change careers and took it to the university level, where I enjoyed doing hours of Arabic and French homework every night. Now, I'm living my dream and currently working as as a freelance translator of Arabic and French to English on ProZ and at Watching America. I'm here to open myself up to more translating jobs, especially international and remote positions.

At UT, I was the odd older student (I graduated at 31 years old) and my background in the Arabic language and culture set me apart and allowed me to shine. This all began when I was a culinary artist that ran my own bakery in Morocco, where I lived for six years. Along the way, I learned Moroccan Arabic and some French and discovered that my passion for languages was far greater. That's when I decided to go back to school and focus on learning Modern Standard Arabic and expand my French. In addition, I'm learning another Arabic dialect, Levantine.

I keep an open mind, continue to study my languages outside of school, and I have a variety of skills and passions outside of school as well. I excelled in sales while supporting myself in school working for the likes of Amnesty International, Plan International and many other NGOs. I would love to find myself working in human rights one day, too. My other hobbies include painting, horseback riding, and dance.

My skill set ranges from managing my own business, to being a certified ESL teacher with 7 years of experience, to sales, to translating... and this is what distinguishes me. Contact me today to see how I can apply these for your company!
