This semester I will be taking three languages in order to work towards my goal of mastering several languages. Meanwhile I will be taking courses needed to apply to the nursing program. Ideally what I would like to do is translate and interpret for those who need help in the hospital. I’d start close to home but my goal is to travel to other cities and countries where language barriers are in everyday life. In addition to Spanish, Sign language, and German; I plan to take classes for Chinese, Russian, Arabic, Swahili and French to start with. It is out of my budget but traveling abroad to study would be a dream come true. I would love to become familiar with the cultures the languages belong to. Any kind of scholarship award I win will go towards my study abroad fund. I’d be delighted to win this scholarship.
