AboutI view my life as a paint palette, and I like to lead a colorful life. Near the end of my senior year at Penn State University, I received six job offers after months of networking events, career fairs, phone interviews, and interview “super days.” However, after careful consideration, I politely declined all six job offers, packed a bag and set off for Colombia in January 2018 to continue painting my life’s palette in vibrant colors. I spent nine months of that year in Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama. I was able to survive financially using my own savings that I earned working as a business statistics tutor in college. When the savings ran out along the way, I then created a social media marketing business to support myself. Spending those nine months in Latin America was imperative for my Spanish-speaking skills. My neighborhood of East Boston has a large Latino population, so I am now blending my real estate niche and language skills to help work with first-time Spanish-speaking buyers.
