Story
Tagline
Freelance Translator/Proofreader and Consecutive Interpreter - French, English, Spanish.
Introduction
I'm a French native speaker from  Brussels, Belgium (born in 1981). Mum is an English speaker from Trinidad (Caribbean) and Dad is a French speaker from Togo, West Africa.  I moved to Maryland in 94, then to NY, Westchester County in 99; went to Mamaroneck High school for my senior year, and then to Westchester Community College from 2000-4.
I obtained my Bachelors/Masters in Spanish (Cum Laude)  and with a Minor in Italian  from Iona College.

I'm currently working as a freelance translator/proofreader and
consecutive interpreter for Agencies and NGOs/nonprofits. I'm pursuing translation studies at NYU to earn my Translation Certificates.  I hope to become an accomplished author/writer/poet too.

I speak French, English, Spanish, and Italian (intermediate level).

ATA (American Translators Association) and NYCT (New York Circle of Translators) member.

Objectives/goals: Training in and learn how to use translation memory software/CAT tools/automation, localisation... Get more training in translation and interpreting, and get certified through associations, organisations, seminars/webinars...

Heritage Facts:

My Heritage: Belgian, Togolese, and Trinidadian

The languages are French, Belgian French dialects or variations (ie. Walloon, French from Brussels...), other languages: Dutch/Flemish and German... The religion is mostly Catholic. 

The name Belgium comes from the foremost inhabitants, the Belgae of Belgium. Belgae are a group of mostly Celtic tribes that came from the Roman province in northern Gaul, known as Gallia Belgica. Bello Gaellum(http://www.ezilon.com/about-belgium.htm). 

Belgium colonised Dem. Rep. of Congo (formerly known as Zaire), Rwanda and some other countries in (Western) Africa...

The official languages of Togo are French and Ewe, this country was colonised by France. They're mostly Catholic or another religion. In Trinidad they speak English (official language), patois/creole, Spanish. There's a mix of cultures, African, Indian, and Carib Indians, plus Chinese, white Europeans, Spanish, Portuguese... The religions are Hindu, Muslim, Protestant, Catholic and other denominations.... This Island was colonised by the Brits....

Ethnic Food Facts:
Belgium: Fries (in the US) or Chips (in the UK), Waffles, Wafers, Mashed potato, sausages, apple sauce, crêpes, ratatouille, bouillabaise, pot au feu... Togo: Foo foo, Agblo, Akple, dried fish, bari... Trinidad: Buss up shot which means burst up shirt, it's like Naan bread but thinner, Coconut Drops, Bread pudding, Fruit Cake, Chinese & Indian food....

Where I’ve been: Belgium, France, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Trinidad, Bermuda, Togo, USA-Maryland, NY, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Connecticut, Baltimore, Cleveland, Virginia

I would like to travel all over the world

Eclectic music personality: I love all types of music, whatever puts me in the mood.
I would also like  to become a musician (amateur) because I play the piano, and a dancer because I love to dance (Zumba). I love arts & crafts, toys & games, video games...

I was there at Coney Island 11 July 2015 up until midnight with family members (mother and nephew), and came there back in 2007 with a friend Nick (on the Cyclone one of the best and oldest rides and other rides). I passed through there while I was on assignments - interpreting for Parents Teachers Concerences in Spanish and English. I'd like to come back and do more rides, including the Cyclone where I have a photo souvenir, I also have a photo souvenir of Thunderbolt, but not of Soarin Eagle (not my favourite ride). I did the Circus Coaster. I took photos. I recommend it for anyone who wants to have fun and cannot afford big expensive amusement parks like Six Flags.

Great place. I went on June 27, 2015 for the first time, always wanted to go, the arcade games are great, and I got to do bowling in real life, when I usually do it on the computer or on video game consoles. The service was great. I recommend it for anybody who wants to come.
