I love to talk to foreigners and that’s precisely what I intend to do, become a translator for International trade/business. I could change the world by expanding companies across seas or borders and seal deals for very important matters. Perhaps be where all the action is and never have a dull day at the office. So far this dream is coming together; I’ve received certification for proficient literacy in three languages (English, Spanish and Japanese) before the end of my high school career. I got English and Spanish under my belt but Japanese is what I strive to master before I graduate from college. Apart from language, I’m especially stellar at public speaking and keeping a crowd intrigued with what I have to say. The nerves never affected me and being a lone voice in a room of strangers feels like second nature. I’ve gone to talk to roomfuls, auditoriums and even stadium sized crowds and never felt like I should regret doing so or run and hide. When I get these factors set and ready for my dream career, it should feel like any other bodily function. Educational wise I’m looking at transferring to the 4-year of my dreams, University of Riverside and getting a bachelors in Linguistics (Japanese track). Whether there’s going to be a masters degree in my future is unknown but everything else is in sight and ready for me to tackle.
