Tara must have missed the day when a life GPS was given to each baby. Her constant twists and turns have taught her a sense of direction with many exciting zig zags. She was born in Miami, Florida, and moved to Buffalo, New York, about fourteen years ago. As she grew, so did her appreciation and admiration for languages. As an undergraduate in college, she had a triple major: Spanish, Communication/Journalism, and English, but needed how to figure out how to combine all three in a succinct way. She speaks and writes in three languages, English, Spanish, and Urdu. She is learning to speak Arabic. But her enthusiasm doesn't just cover her classes (or her love for coffee); she genuinely enjoys the activities she does outside of the classroom as well. This fall, she began a Master's Degree this past fall in International Media. She is interning at the Department of Treasury, and works on campus at the Center for Teaching, Research and Learning. While she never stops moving, she wouldn't have it any other way.
