I am a highly motivated recent graduate of the University of Dallas, and am experienced in working with people of all ages and temperaments. I have frequently used Spanish in my jobs, whether in formal writing or communicating with customers, parents, or children. As a Spanish major from a liberal arts university, I have learned the discipline of writing properly in both Spanish and English in subjects ranging from legal matters to literature prose. I am well versed in the art of translation, (legal, sport/news, literature and the like) creative and analytical writing, and journalism in both English and Spanish. I have a deep knowledge and understanding of liberal art subjects such as western world history, American history, philosophy, art and architecture, social sciences, Spanish and English Literature, theology, and both formal, written music and contemporary pop music. Having been raised in a bilingual household, I have native-level linguistic competency in Spanish which was expanded by my major.
