I recently received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and Writing, Rhetoric & Communication (WCR) with a focus in Sociology at a small liberal arts university. As a WRC major, I am incredibly amazed by all the different modes of communication that exist. I enjoy learning about different modes of communication as well as how different genres of communication affect individuals and groups. As a Spanish major, I am very interested in learning more about the Spanish language as well as Hispanic culture, history, and literature. Last summer I studied abroad for a month in Segovia, Spain, where I had the opportunity not only to improve my Spanish skills but also learn more about Spanish culture, media, and film.
Now that I have completed undergraduate school, I am excited to begin my new journey in the workplace. I am currently serving as the Language Access Outreach Specialist with a nonprofit; I am very excited to see how this position helps me learn more about the world of nonprofits, acquire new skills, and do what I love. You can read about my experience on another blog myvistayear.wordpress.com. In the future, I hope to combine my passion for Spanish with the skills I acquired studying WRC and Sociology as well as the knowledge I gained on- and off-campus in order to work directly with Spanish-speaking people, be active with community outreach, and learn more about public relations and marketing online.
