BS Mechanical Engineering, minor in French | 2012

Works for a quality assurance engineering company based in California.

"I used French as a customer service representative that served all of North and South America. Not only for inquiries from Quebec, but being able to transfer cognate forms to read inquiries in Spanish and Portuguese. Later, being able to bond with coworkers from overseas whose second and third languages were French and English in that order. It gives you a broader perspective that non-language students can't provide."
