After graduation

I worked in Spain as an English Teaching Assistant through the Ministry of Education of Spain and founded my start-up, Language in Motion. Language in Motion is a new marketplace for language learning that offers personalized, in-person and online classes with native speakers.


I studied Spanish and Italian before college. Studying these languages before college allowed me to test into more advanced classes as a freshman.

How language enriched

Studying Spanish and Italian helped me immerse into Spanish and Italian culture when I lived abroad. 


I feel passionate about learning, exploring, and growing through language education and cultural understanding.
