I have led a nomadic life for the past 10 years, moving around the globe to pursue my dream of becoming a well-rounded linguist. My journey has not finished.
When I am not trying to figure out my next move, I enjoy participating in environmentally-conscious activities (beach cleans, hikes) that make me feel more productive outside of academia. I try to live a plastic-free life through use of containers, jars, re-useable produce bags, reusable coffee cups, and eating in as much as I can. As an undergraduate student, I participated in several beach cleans and other activities that promoted environmental consciousness through the Campus Verde group at the University of Puerto Rico. I also later joined Clean Coasts as volunteer in Ireland.
I also enjoy running, dancing zumba, and trying out new vegetarian/vegan restaurants and coffee shops.
I am artistically inclined. I often engage in portrait drawing, poetry writing, and I also sing and play guitar. Occasionally, I bake for friends and family. I am an all around happy person and like to do a little bit of everything!
