Hello, my name is Kym Rocchia. I am a student in Applied Modern Languages in the South East of France, my majors are English and Spanish. I have a strong interest for languages and foreign cultures and I would like to become a translator. I am interested in travelling abroad and I find it enriching to meet foreign people with different mentalities and ways of living. I am also an amateur photographer and I am interested in any kind of art, drawing and creation.

I am a British communications professional with more than 14 yearsâ experience. My career has been more oriented towards English <> Spanish interpreting and translation in recent years, a profession which I consider to be an extension of the art of communicating. I grew up in a truly multilingual environment and this has given me an in-depth knowledge of both the Spanish and English language and culture. I always aim to make it âsound rightâ.
