Why did I study linguistics?

I've always been interested in languages, but I probably got hooked on linguistics after taking Latin for a few years and then comparing it to Spanish and French.

I moved on to Welsh and other Celtic languages for heritage reasons, but also got a chance to study Sinhala (Sri Lanka) and some Sanskrit.

If there's one thing I have learned, is that there are no boring languages out there.

Ever since I was young I've traveled to different countries around the world. Every place I traveled to I tried to learn as much of the language as I could pick up on.

I always found studying other languages fascinating which led me to study French in high school (given that I only had the options of French and Spanish).

The first Linguistics class I took at PSU, during my Sophomore year, had me hooked and I've been studying it ever since.

My major is French with a Linguistics option. My minor in Linguistics also overlaps with my major.
