Ciao a tutti! My love for languages influenced me to study English Linguistics and Italian during my time at San Francisco State University. I was fortunate to be able study abroad in Italy two different times. This opportunity enabled me to gain fluency in the Italian language and learn more about the Italian culture. I decided to study Spanish five years ago and have picked up the language quickly due to the similarities with Italian. I was able to live abroad in El Salvador during the summer of 2015 and have reached fluency in the Spanish language. I hope to have the chance to share my love of language with you!
