Hello! 👋 My name is Marina and I’m from the state of Wisconsin in the United States. I recently graduated from high school and am excited to be starting college this September!
I enjoy spending time with my family and am close with my younger sister and three younger cousins, all of whom have shown me that I love being around kids. I was a part of my school’s Spanish Honor Society this past year, where I had the opportunity to volunteer with a local grade school’s ESL (English as a second language) program. I had so much fun working with the kids, while actively learning a bit more Spanish! For the past three years, I’ve worked as a virtual English tutor for students in China. It’s been extremely fulfilling to watch my students improve in their speaking abilities, enabling them to communicate amazing aspects of their culture with me in the process! I am unsure of what my future in college and beyond will look like, but I do hope I will have the privilege to help children while immersing myself in their cultures and communities around the world!
As for other interests, I’ve always loved being outside and in nature (especially if it’s hot out ☀️)! I was a lifeguard last summer where I learned CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and other lifesaving techniques. Working under pressure in a high-stakes environment presented me with new challenges, but learning with a team and persevering on the beach under the sun made the endeavor totally worthwhile! I like camping with my family, hiking, playing soccer and of course, swimming! Since I was little, writing has always been my favorite part of school and it’s also a big part of my life outside of school!
This summer, I hope to follow my curiosities and interests surrounding travel, language, nature, culture abroad and children! I want to experience the world while creating a positive impact. I hope to learn in ways that will challenge my perspective and provide me insight into the possibilities that lie ahead of me, and I hope to inspire others to do the same! I would love to welcome a new country and all it has to offer into my life this summer, and hope to find a country as excited as I am to do the same!
I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me! Thank you! 😁

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
I am fluent in English, as it is my first language. I enjoy reading and writing in English, and I’d love to share this language. I’ve worked as an online English tutor for three years and I volunteered tutoring grade school students in English as a second language in my last year of school. I’ve taken four years of Spanish (all in high school) and am planning to continue learning Spanish in college. As of now, I have a basic understanding of the language, and would be able to communicate at a beginner level. I work well with children and have had experience babysitting, as well as personal experience within my family and community! I am CPR certified and was a lifeguard last summer.
I enjoy playing soccer and other sports. I like to swim and be outside. I hope to have a chance to explore the vast array of outdoor activities and adventures the world has to offer this summer!
