    I'm 23 years old and currently working as a freelance Translator. I have lived in Japan as an exchange student in 2005-2006 which has made me very interested in learning foreign languages and studying other cultures. I can speak French and English fluently and also have a good understanding of Spanish and Japanese. I'd be interested in finding an ongoing Data entry or translation job. I also studied Art at L'Université Toulouse II Le Mirail and have recently graduated with a Bachelor's Degree. So far I've worked on a few children's books and puzzles, mostly cartoon like illustrations. I'm also very fond of realism drawing, such as portraits, and I can adapt really easily to different styles (Anime, comics, etc)
