Yvonne

My name is Yvonne. I was born to two loving parents in Ponce, Puerto Rico on Thanksgiving Day in November 1954. I am the second of three siblings- two are boys who tease me to no end to this date, but who I love very much.

My passions at a younger age were dancing and the theatre, so I was involved in many school plays. I learned to flamenco dance, and play the castanets. To this day, I still enjoy their sound and still play them occasionally when I listen to the Gypsy Kings music. I hope my neighbors appreciate me sharing my culture, ;-) .

I have been living in the United States since 1980. I have been divorced for nearly five years And, regretfully, have no children. I guess it was not meant to be, but on the brighter side, I have plenty of nieces and nephews who fill my life with joy and who think I am the coolest aunt. They are so much fun and so full of life and I am so very fortunate to have them visit with me every summer. (Well, okay, after a few days, I am ready to pull my hair out ..But is only for the summer so I have to remain Cool!!!! )

Living alone in the United States and being separated from my family has made me a stronger and independent person. I am not afraid of taking chances at what life has to offer and live to the fullest. Along the way, I have found a great group of friends who now enrich my life and bring me laughter through stormy weather. :-)

I live in Maryland and I am fortunate to live in such a beautiful area surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. My sense of adventure, thirst for knowledge, and of course my first job, brought me to the United States. I started out as a Radiology Technologist, but soon after, moved on to work for the airline industry as a Spanish interpreter, and twenty years later I am still with them. Time "FLIES!” My career has enable me to travel the world and exposed me to many cultures, which has been a rewarding and useful experience. One of my favorite destinations is Madrid, Spain, which is such a fun and lively city. I also got the opportunity to practice my flamenco while I was there and purchase a new set of castanets-- just like a pro!!! And I did dance while I was there—okay, the Sangria make me do it!! ha,ha,ha.

I have recently attended training to use my interpreting skills to pursue a career in medical or legal interpretation. I was recently certified in hopes to put it to good use and assist the Hispanic community into the States.

"Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a Life by what we give" ( Norman MacEwan)
