Freelance Translator/Proofreader and Consecutive Interpreter - French (native), English, Spanish - currently in NY
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 (last year of secondary), 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, pursuing translation studies at NYU to earn my Translation Certificates and Translation and Interpreter Training at International School of Linguists.  I hope to become an accomplished author/writer/poet too.

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