Letter to the family

Hi, I’m Maya , or Maya l'abeille ;). I’m currently from San Diego, California and now here in Lyon, France receiving my MSc in Sustainable Food Systems. I’ve just arrived from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy since my program is international. From my experience working as a clinical nutritionist at a hormone replacement clinic. There, I learned the importance of the relationship of where our food derives from as being directly correlated to causing long term effects of hormonal imbalances. I strive to help patients implement a healthier way of life. Also, I volunteered for the Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) in Brazil, USA, and Costa Rica in assisting on organic farms. I’m an avid traveler, and have been addicted to learning more about other cultures, customs, traditions, and language. I’m a native English speaker, with conversational Spanish, Italian, and a little bit of Portuguese.

Experience

As part of my undergraduate degree, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa in Food Science and Nutrition. I explored Seville, Spain to study abroad. There, I volunteered at the Hospital Virgen del Rocio: I cared for infants and children by lovingly holding and caring for them as a balm to calm and compose them during surgery and rehabilitation. I discovered a newfound joy through compassion and the sweet lyrics and melody of soothing verbal and nonverbal communication. Despite my imperfect Spanish, it became a rewarding experience to sing, to nurture, and to provide verbal comfort to these patients. Navigating my way in a foreign hospital, I had gained exposure to international medical terminology and Spanish policies. It was a challenge I adored. Also, I'm the youngest daughter out of five older brothers. I would babysit my nieces, nephews, and cousins. Imagine, coming from an Brazilian/Mexican family, they like to procreate.

I've taught English only, ranging from private lessons, Seville Spain, to a little business English at the Benedict School in Genoa Italy, and a summer camp in Perugia, Italy. At the camp, the children had to perform the famous American Classic 1978’s film Grease. I was in charge of music, dance, and threw in Duck, Duck, Goose and a spin of Los Del Rio - Macarena. My teaching methodology would treat everyone individualized, just like customizing a personal meal plan in nutrition. Each person learns differently, however through experience I find it helpful for the learner to promote an interactive, fun, and easy approach to English.
