"Translation and interpretation always makes me happy and excited. It feels like I am breaking a secret code to ease understanding for everyone." "I chose to do an independent study as a translator with Kearney Public Schools. It was a terrific hands-on experience and helped me develop professional and personal relationships, which led to career opportunities."
