Anna grew up in a Portuguese- and English-speaking household and loved the opportunities being bilingual afforded her to create understanding between individuals. In college, she decided to study another language to be able to communicate with even more people. While earning her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and since graduating in 2013, she has thoroughly enjoyed her translating responsibilities in internships, research activities, service-learning roles, volunteering, and other work, mostly in medical settings. She is looking forward to continuing to facilitate meaningful interactions between English, Spanish, and Portuguese speakers through freelance work.
