She spent a semester in Madrid, Spain, and later went abroad again for an intensive Arabic course in Amman, Jordan.

Arianna currently works as an Education Support Professional at Kokanee Elementary in Bothell. She speaks Arabic and Spanish fluently and is working on learning French. When she’s not out with friends/family she’s at home working through five books at once or making overly optimistic travel plans.
