About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Quiero ser una profesora bilingue por estudiantes inmigrantes en Nueva York. Por eso voy a Mexico y la Republica Dominicana para practicar mi español.

ABOUT ME

Más que viajar me encanta vivir en paises nuevos para experimentar la vida por todos lados del mundo.

Me gusta leer, escuchar música, hacer deportes y hacer nuevas amistades.

Me encanta aprender idiomas nuevos, especialmente los idiomas emergentes e informales como Pidgin en Ghana..

PHILOSOPHY

from Questions of Travel, by Elizabeth Bishop

Think of the long trip home.
Should we have stayed at home and thought of here?
Where should we be today?
Is it right to be watching strangers in a play
in this strangest of theatres?
What childishness is it that while there's a breath of life
in our bodies, we are determined to rush
to see the sun the other way around?
The tiniest green hummingbird in the world?
To stare at some inexplicable old stonework,
inexplicable and impenetrable,
at any view,
instantly seen and always, always delightful?
Oh, must we dream our dreams
and have them, too?
And have we room
for one more folded sunset, still quite warm?

But surely it would have been a pity
not to have seen the trees along this road...
