5 years of AP French, 2 years college Spanish, and 2 years ASL... English/Journalism major with minors in French and Spanish. In addition, I have college agronomy experience and a state pesticide applicator's license (which is not easy to get). I have always been a farm girl, but most people associate ignorance with farmers... I'm just saying.
