I am a musician and a linguist junkie. I was a voice and Spanish Major in college. I love the sound of the romantic languages, especially Spanish and Italian because it is so similar to singing. I crave traveling, but not as a tourist but a volunteer. Being in a new country for me is about making connections with locals and understanding how they live. Despite all of our global issues, the world is still a beautiful place, and cultures should be celebrated.
