Angelike (pronounced an-juh-leek) was born in the tiny town of Archidona, which you might not have heard of if you have never been to Ecuador. She was born in a town with fewer than 5,000 people and by the time she was 20 years old, she had already left her country to study abroad in France & Canada while studying translation and interpretation. By her mid-twenties she completed her Master’s Degree in Scotland and recently studied abroad in Israel. Angelike wants to see the world, get to know other cultures and get an education. And no, she will not pay for any of this. All of her semesters and years studying abroad were through scholarships. These experiences helped her “find herself”; it’s how she became trilingual; how she learned what it means to bar hop in Europe; and eventually, led her to start her own business. Here is her story and she wants you to know that, yes, you can do it too!
I had never heard of Myasthenia Gravis until my friend, Maria Fernanda, was diagnosed with this chronic illness in 2013. We met in 2008 while we both worked towards obtaining degrees in translation and interpretation. We bonded as translation geeks over weekly happy hour sessions, through discussions about our terrible love lives, our mutual love of dogs and trips to the beach. As our lives began to lead us in different paths (I haven’t physically seen her since she said goodbye to me at an airport in 2012), we are still connected through WhatsApp and as traveling translators.
What do you think?
Was the judge too harsh?
Should this happen every time an attorney forgets, or worse, doesn’t even know his client needs an interpreter?
If I was the judge, I would have done the exact same thing.
Like I said before, JUST by living abroad for a semester doesn’t mean that you can interpret or translate, but that doesn’t mean it can’t help you in the long run.
At UEES, you can go abroad for a semester or a year to many parts of the world. You can pick among many locations, such as Mexico, United States, Canada, Australia, Korea, France, Japan, and others.
