Spanish - I hold a degree in Education and Spanish. I fluently speak Spanish and use it in 90% of my daily life. I learned Spanish in Bolivia and am married to a native speaker. Cooking/Baking - Cooking and baking are not just hobbies, but passions of mine. I have been cooking and baking since I was a child. I also worked for several summers in a large, industrial kitchen at a children's summer camp, feeding over 300 campers daily.
