“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -Jack Kerouac

How will foreign language impact your future? The ability to communicate and personally connect with Spanish-speaking persons, whether it be in this country or areas that I travel to, will be hugely beneficial in my future. Also, I am hoping to enter the education field after graduation, and knowing a second language is a great advantage when job-seeking.

How will foreign language impact your future? The ability to fluently speak three languages will certaqinly be useful as a Physician Assistant.  With an increase of Spanish speakers, it is essential for medical practices to have personnel capable of relaying information in a way one can understand.  My use of Spanish has already gotten me this far in life, but I hope to continue on in ways that will benefit the lives of others.
