MA in Global Communication & Applied Translation

Education: B.A., The Pennsylvania State University, Russian


I am currently a Masters student in the Global Communication and Applied Translation program. As a New York born Dominican-American daughter of immigrants, I personally understand the power and importance of language and translation. That is why after receiving my BA in Russian from Penn State University, I wanted to continue my studies and help contribute to the diverse field of language study through learning, teaching, and research. Alongside studying Russian, I also studied Korean and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
