I always strive to help my students find deeper connections between the materials they are learning and their lives,” she wrote on Linkedin. “I am passionate about translation because I believe that language, spoken or written, is a conduit for understanding and that words can bring people together, even though sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right ones!
