Nobody truly thrives by standing still, and this is as valid for me as for anyone else. For this reason, I take continuous personal development very seriously and am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge and skills, whether it be reading in the languages I translate from, attending events such as the Language Show or learning new languages – currently I am getting to grips with Danish.
