About me:

I was born in Caracas (Venezuela), and I lived there until 2013. I obteined my Bachelor in Translation at the Central University of Venezuela (French-German). For a couple years I worked as an audiovisual translator for several companies in Caracas, I also taught English in my spare time. I started to teach Spanish in 2012 when I came for the first time to France to work as a Spanish assistant in a highschool, loved it and haven't stopped ever since. From the moment I came to France, I've completed two masters and started my PhD, all Spanish related. In my free time I enjoy movies, series and books. I also like animals and spending time in nature. Once a year I love to travel to a new place in Europe, especially in order to meet new people and learn about their history and culture.
