Alec says, “I believe that learning is a lifelong process and that it is never too late (or early) to learn something new. I have conducted linguistic research with bilingual children in San Juan, Puerto Rico in order to study the effects of a second language on the brain. I also love learning languages. Right now, I am studying French with plans to learn Portuguese next!  Other hobbies of mine include language learning and linguistics, traveling, both locally and internationally, reading, and cooking.
