What do you do and why do you do it?

I study Italian translator at the university. I love learning new languages, cultures, etc. I've chosen Italian because it's my second nationality. Also, i'm a tango dancer. I've learned other dances in my life but I got really enchanted whit tango culture. I used to make presentations but now I just enjoy dancing in social events (milongas) and such.
