My own language learning journey began at a young age when I started to study Japanese in high school. As I excelled in the class, I found that I was able to connect with Japanese exchange students, listen to Japanese music and movies, and appreciate Japanese culture even more by using my language skills. After multiple trips to Japan in high school, I decided to major in East Asian Languages and Literature, with a specialization in Spanish. After one year abroad in Spain and a semester abroad in Japan, I realized that my passion in life is to travel and immerse myself in foreign cultures. After graduating from university, I moved to Buenos Aires and worked at a Spanish language school in the admissions department helping students study Spanish in Argentina. I travelled across South America and perfected my Spanish abilities. After two and a half years, I decided to continue my higher education and moved to Germany to complete my MA degree in Latin American studies. I learned German and enjoyed a classic German university experience in a small university city. I also taught English classes and US cultural classes to German students. Through my university program, I was able to spend a semester in Guadalajara, Mexico researching for my master’s thesis on women in Mexican cinema. After graduating from the master’s program, I moved to Tel Aviv, Israel and began working as a content writer and learning Hebrew. Throughout this journey, language has been the most tangible skill set that I have used to adapt and integrate into many countries. I am passionate about connecting with people from different backgrounds, exploring unique regions, and enjoying local food. I want to continue to travel, expand my horizons, live life to the fullest.
