Communication is key. Communicating does not become less important depending on where you are, what you do, who you are, or how you do it. I love helping people communicate. I have always found myself in a facilitating position, whether it is between friends, my parents, or even strangers. I would love to go to college and take all the course work necessary for a linguistics or communications degree. I have already taken one step to having fine credentials by getting accepted to New York University, now I need the funding. I plan to help those who have a hard time getting their message heard but using my own voice to enhance theirs. It is also important to have a voice that can be heard around the globe. I am bilingual; fluent in english and spanish. I live with a family of native english speakers. I was able to become fluent in spanish because I pursued an opportunity to study abroad in Spain for nine months. My experience abroad is really where I developed a firm grasp on the importance of knowing how to communicate well with others. My spanish was awful within my first few months of being there, but with cautious patience and dedication, I learned different ways to communicate with others. I want to help others in the same situation I was in when I went abroad. Communication is the world, and it is the tool needed to change it.
