Hello everyone, I recently became interested in genealogy as it combines several of my interests: history, other cultures, and linguistics. I am working on a Spanish major and intend to work as a translator. I love working with children and would like to incorporate this into my future career. I would be happy to do what I can to help with translation, and am excited by this project.


Here are the languages I am studying and my levels of fluency. I think that every little bit helps so I never stop learning what I can. I was inspired to learn as many languages as possible after being able to translate for a Russian man in an emergency. I realized that you never know when you can help someone by knowing even a little of their language! If you need help translating something let me know and I'll be happy to try. :)

  • French: Fluent. I took classes from 8th grade through highschool and have continued to study on my own.
  • Haitian Creole: Beginner. I am self taught and can read it better than I can speak it due to its similarity to French.
  • Portuguese: Low intermediate. Self taught, also had exposure to the language as a child through a family friend from Brazil and from classmates from Brazil.
  • Spanish: Fluent. Self taught; I am currently working on a Spanish major and haven't taken the Spanish class portion yet. I have volunteered with organizations in my community that are predominantly Spanish speaking.
  • Italian: High intermediate, self taught.
  • Romainian: Beginner, self taught.
  • Russian: Intermediate. I took two semesters in college and am continuing to study on my own.
  • Ukrainian: Beginner, self taught.
  • Polish: Beginner, self taught.
  • Czech: Beginner, self taught.
  • Hungarian: Beginner, self taught.
  • German: Intermediate, mostly self taught. My mom has German heritage and taught me some German as a child. This is the first foreign language I learned.
  • Dutch: Low intermediate, self taught
  • Danish: Beginner, self taught
  • Swedish: Beginner, self taught
  • Norwegian: Beginner, self taught
  • Greek: Beginner, self taught
  • Armenian: Beginner, self taught. I have not learned to read in this language yet.
  • Turkish: Beginner, self taught.
  • Arabic: Beginner, self taught. I heard this language spoken often as a child because I had a lot of classmates from Arabic speaking countries. I have not learned to read in this language yet.
  • Amharic: Beginner, self taught. I have not learned to read in this language yet. My younger sister (adopted) took a DNA test and discovered that she has Ethiopian heritage, so I decided to learn the language.
  • Swahili: Beginner, self taught.
  • Hindi: Beginner, self taught. I have not learned to read in this language yet.
  • Indonesian: Beginner, self taught.
  • Korean: Beginner, self taught. I heard this language spoken often as a child because I had a lot of classmates from South Korea. I haven't learned to read in this language yet.
  • Japanese: Beginner, self taught.
  • Vietnamese: Beginner, self taught
  • Mandarin: Beginner, self taught. My aunt and cousin have Chinese heritage and I speak Mandarin with my cousin sometimes. I struggle with the tones and am working hard to learn how to read in this language.
