This month, our featured member is Cristina Berry, Translator and EFL teacher.
Where are you from?
I am half British-half Spanish, but I went to college in SC and lived in NYC for 4 years, where I had my first-born. So I definitely feel a strong connection to the US.
How long have you been an ACM member?
I attended the Thanksgiving bash two years in a row as an “outsider” before finally deciding to join two years ago.
At which ACM event have you had the most fun?
I loved the speed-networking Happy Hour. Time flew by and I met a lot of interesting people and made several promising professional contacts.
Where do you work?
I have been an English <> Spanish freelance translator for the last 14 years and I also teach business English. Before that, I worked in banking for 8 years. I love reinventing myself so, who knows what awaits down the line!
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am a Zumba enthusiast, I absolutely live by the motto “dance like nobody is watching!”
The American Club of Madrid (ACM) is the “go-to” organization for English-speaking professionals living in Madrid. Being an active member of the ACM is a great way to network and make new friends while celebrating the American culture.
