Objective

Everyday I learn something different whether it is at school, home or at work learning is a part of life and I am always willing to learn something new. I am a quick learner which makes things easier to pick up the new things life has to offer me. The more I learn it will give me not only more experience, but will make me a better person for the future. I don’t speak spanish very much, but I do understand it and I have produced several spanish radio spots. Understanding the language helps me get by.
