In Spring 2017, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Writing, Rhetoric & Communication (WCR) with a minor in Sociology from a small liberal arts university. I began using this blog in Spring 2014 to document reports, reflections, and more when I took a digital rhetoric course; afterwards, I used this blog even more as I signed up for additional rhetoric courses. Alongside the posts shared during college courses, I shared weekly reflections during my internship at Lexington Community Radio where I interned at the station throughout my senior year. Throughout my time in undergraduate school, I gained a great deal of knowledge on- and off-campus.
In August 2017, I began my service with a local 501(c)3 nonprofit. I am happy to be serving as the Language Access Outreach Specialist with an organization that strives to increase public awareness of the importance of professional interpreters and translators, train interpreters and translators, and inform people of their right to an interpreter or translator. I am excited to serve with a local nonprofit that aims to fulfill a mission that is very important to me. In this position, I hope to combine the skills I acquired from my studies with the knowledge I gained through my experiences in clubs, internships, and more. I am excited to use my skills and passion for philanthropy, community outreach, and public relations/marketing as I serve with this nonprofit for the next year. During my year of service with this wonderful nonprofit organization, I will also share monthly and quarterly reports
