Hi everyone. My name is Michael, but when I speak Spanish I usually call myself Miguel. I am Filipino-Canadian, meaning that both my parents are Filipino, but I was born in Canada. I’m currently in between my third and fourth year. My major is Spanish and I’m minoring in Psychology. I am an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant at UBC, helping out in SPAN 206, Conversational Spanish. I am also a Spanish Tutor within the French, Hispanic, and Italian Studies Department.

I have a goal of speaking Spanish as well as I speak English. I would also like to visit all the countries in Latin America and Spain. I find Spanish such a fascinating language, I can proudly say that I am in love with it.

In the future I hope to be a highschool teacher. Perhaps I’ll teach Spanish, English, (and maybe French). I am also thinking of having a private counselling practice on the side.
