Isobel Mearns: I’m currently studying French and Spanish Translation at the University of Bath. I’ve always loved languages, deciding to do a BA in French and Hispanic Studies at King’s College London, which gave me the opportunity to live abroad, firstly working as an English Assistant at a lycée in Dijon, and then studying Spanish in Granada and Santiago de Compostela. I have always wanted to work with languages, so I decided a translation course would widen my experience and could provide exciting opportunities. I love that as a translator you learn about such diverse topics, whilst getting to put your language skills into practice. Translating for the GIMUN blog is a really worthy cause, and a great way to get experience.
