I am presently a French Language translator, interpreter and language trainer as well as a Technical writer and Content writer/reviewer in English with a renowned IT-based MNC in the last 8.5 years. My passions have always resided in Music and Teaching, and it was only a matter of exploring one as a profession while the other would keep my soul alive. The choice became obvious when I pursued my B.A French at Elphinstone College, Mumbai, and M.A French at Bombay University’s Kalina campus. I was going to teach French, and so did my B.Ed through St. Teresa’s Institute of Education, Santa Cruz, before I landed my first job at R.A.Podar College of Commerce and Economics, Matunga, where I taught for 5 years before moving to Bangalore.
In Bangalore I taught both – Junior and Degree college French and Headed the Department of French for 7 of the 8.5 years that I taught at Mount Carmel College Autonomous. As HOD, I curated and initiated an undergraduate course in French, making it the only college in Karnataka to offer a B.A with French as one of the Ancillary subjects. This course ran for 5 batches (until I moved out).
Through the years, I was also a Guest Faculty at Bangalore University for 10 years for the Regular Masters in French program, teaching papers in Translation, Theory of Grammar and Literature (17th through 20th Century).
With a teaching and training experience of 22.5 years, I now head the Trainings Initiative for Foreign Languages in our Language Team, but at the same time writing has been a constant love, explored even more now, with me heading our English Newsletter for my organization’s Language Team across India.
