Jing “Lacy” Lan Accepted to Graduate School
Jing Lan, better known at Lewis & Clark as “Lacy,” has been accepted into the Master’s degree program at Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California. Lan will begin her studies in the two-year Interpretation and Translation program in August 2011.
Lan, from Guilin, China, has long been interested in simultaneous interpretation. In high school one of Lan’s teachers noted her gift for languages and her even temperament and suggested that she would be a good translator. Lan had a few opportunities to explore her translation skills in high school and at Lewis & Clark. She feels that such a field is a good “fit” for her skills.
Lan graduated from Lewis & Clark in December of 2010 with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. She has been engaged in optional practical training since that time. Her short term goal is to obtain her Master’s degree and become a simultaneous interpreter. Long term, Lan would like to form her own company in China to provide interpreters for government and business needs.
Congratulations to Lacy Lan!
