This audio editing program, which I worked with for a few weeks, allowed me to record and edit audio for several projects. 

Final Cut Pro

I had approximately six weeks of training for using this program. I learned how to shoot and edit film as well as refine my skills with a Mac Desktop.

Fluency in Spanish

I consider myself fluent in the Spanish language, specifically in written Spanish, but also in verbal communication. I have taken Spanish language classes for six and a half years. Also, this past summer I spent some time in Ecuador where I interacted with hundred of native Spanish speakers. 


I have become very interested in community service work over the past several years. In fact, in the summer of 2012, I worked with a large group of DePauw students doing service work in the Greencastle community as well as in central Ecuador. My volunteer experience during college has included work with the Humane Society to raise funds, Putnam County Family Support Services to provide child care, and a local elementary school for an after-school Spanish program. 

I am also very interesting in traveling to different places both around the country and the world. I hope to study abroad in the upcoming academic year and see myself conducting research abroad in the future.
