My name is Elba Estrada, I'm native from El Salvador and I'm fluent in Spanish and English. I was educated in the business administration and secretarial fields. Back home I worked in a steel company distribution as a secretary. In Indiana I moved to a different total field and started to work in restaurants as a waitress, cashier and then management. In the past 7 years I've been working in another different field, I'm a machine operator for a Japanese corporation. I also have done on the side jobs like translating for people in courts, hospitals, etc. I'm ready to take advantage of my bilingual skills and take myself to a better and different level as becoming a certified interpreter. I'm a very dynamic person with good communication skills, very familiar with the latino community culture and I'm sure I could be a good asset for a good company that requires my translation skills and at the same time help my none english speaking latino community with their needs. I'm reliable, service minded, always willing to grow.

I am a 16 year old teenager who loves writing. I believe, and I am often told, I am very creative, and that my way of expressing myself and/or my thoughts through writing is sometimes much better than the way I do so through speech. My writing skills are very well developed, and I do believe to be able to fulfill the needs of those who seek my services.
