    Expats Paris

    My major was Women's Studies and my minor was African American Studies. I took a host of other classes as required and some just for the sake of taking them. My dream is to one day become an interpreter, I preferably want to become fluent in Japanese, French, and Deutsch. I'm thinking that I would have to go backwards and redo undergrad in order to move forward. I was also thinking about studying Linguistics. Learning languages other than my own has always captivated me.

    Expats Paris

    No, I haven't done any political campaigning. The only organization that I can think of is the UN, but I haven't worked there since the age of 14. In addition to that I lost all of the contact information for the supervisor that I once worked for. As a result of this, I know that it doesn't work in my best interest. I'm juggling ideas on what to do next. I feel so lost since graduating from college. I constantly boggle my mind with thoughts of my future.

    Expats Paris

    I must say that I'm a person who likes to try different things. Since the age of 13 I've spent each and every summer working. Each year I worked for a different company, the list includes: United Nations, Sierra Club, retail jobs, Center For Family Life, the library and now a jewelry company by the name of Ingwer. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts with a major in Women's Studies and a minor in African American Studies.

    Your life seems very busy, fun, and lively. I appreciate you replying back to my shout. I'm looking all over the internet, trying to find ways to get back to Paris permanently. I took Japanese in high school and in college, I have no French language skills as of yet. I only know a few of the basics, despite my two month stay. I know for sure that I want to live in Paris, but I'm so confused on where to begin my journey.

    Expats Paris

    Bonjour Katherine,

    My name is Alexis. I'm from New York City. My first visit to Paris was in the summer of 2006. I took two graduate courses through a program provided by Syracuse University. Ever since my first visit, I have fallen completely in love with Paris. What was the transition like for you? if you don't mind me asking. I have hopes of one becoming an expat myself, and Paris is at the top of my list of where I want to be. Can you give me any suggestions or helpful information. Thanks
