I attend the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College. I was born and raised by two loving Dominican parents who never let me forget where I came from. I was surrounded by family and friends of my culture who always embraced and celebrated who they were. My native language is Spanish and even as a child I learned to appreciate being able to speak two languages. I love my Spanish culture and I also love the English language, so I decided to major in English and Spanish to improve my reading, writing and communication skills in both languages. My family, friends and teachers have inspired me to pursue a career in teaching. I love to learn and I love kids. I hope to be an amazing teacher soon, and if I’m lucky I’ll be able to inspire all of my students as well.
