I originally emigrated to the United States in 2009 and spent six months learning the language. I noticed a stark contrast in the learning process for everyone. It seemed as though people that kept their same friends and environment weren't progressing as rapidly in their acquisition of the new language. On the other hand, from an immigrant's perspective, it was terrifying to have to face rejection because of an accent, culture, etc. Transculturation Co Inc was born out of the desire to create a platform for both immigrants to integrate and for nationals to engage through unique language classes. The premise is the concept of resilience: building adaptability by stretching regularly and being connected to a support system.
I went on to study political sciences and global affairs. I've worked with children since 2011 and lent my hand to several non-profit ventures as an assistant and coordinator for years. In my spare time, I enjoy reading a good book and spending time with loved ones. I also have a secret love for sewing, and occasionally try my hand at special projects. According to my friends, I spend too much time on the phone and social media.
