Currently finishing my internship in the Effectiff translation agency (1 month)
I love interpreting and I work hard on my simultaneous and consecutive interpretation skills every day. I think that the interpreter’s
profession has been crucial at all times because what an interpreter does is a vital element of intercultural communication that provides understanding
and improvement of international relations. It contributes to the world’s peace. It is essential so as anyone who doesn’t know foreign languages could have an
opportunity to communicate with anybody from any city and any country. Translators and interpreters sweep away borders and give people so much freedom.
That’s what inspires me in what I do and keeps me at it.
Although it’s only my second year at university, I’m pretty confident that deep knowledge of English, literate Russian speech and stress resistance compensate for the lack of experience.
