Language specialist in Albanian and Lao at Simya Solutions.
I'm a journalism major who has spent many years traveling around Asia and Europe writing stories. In my spare time, I teach English both online and offline. Not only do I love languages for what they are, but also how they shape the history and culture of a place. I hope you enjoy my work.
