Where are you from? What brought you to Miami? 
I like to say I’m from “Planeta Terra”, because I never know how to answer this simple question with a simple answer. What brought me to Miami? Family members mostly, and the sun : )

Where have you traveled and where are your favorite places to visit?

I have been very fortunate to have traveled to several countries already and I hope to continue my travels throughout my life! I don’t know which country I’d call my favorite, but I loved each place for its unique beauty. The countries that left the biggest impression on me were Vietnam, Cuba, India, China, Egypt, and Brazil.

What are some of your favorite foods and hobbies?

All foods from Asia and pizza of course! My favorite hobby is dancing, specifically belly dancing & salsa!

What is your favorite thing about Miami?

I love that I can walk down the street and hear a multitude of languages.

What are your recommendations for students to check out?

Students should check out the full-moon kayaking that you can do at night in some of the parks in the area.

What is your favorite thing about working as a teacher for EC Miami?

I love the students & the location!

What class levels do you teach?

I’ve been teaching all levels as a substitute and it has been great getting to know many different students this way!

Anything else you want to tell the students?

Get out of Miami so that you can appreciate Miami’s uniqueness and see how it is so different from the rest of the US!
