Where are you from? I was born in California, but my entire family is from Mexico, so although my nationality is USA, I am from Mexico.

Where do you reside? I reside in Metairie, LA with my three children, Rhett, Oliver and Vivian

What is your favorite plan in New Orleans?

 I enjoy playing tourist for the day and go sightseeing. I especially enjoy the many museums this city offers.

Do you have any hobbies? I enjoy cake decorating, painting, and gardening. I am not the best at it, but it relieves stress and I get to release my creative side.

What is your professional background? I am currently attending my last year of law school at Southern University Law Center. I obtained my masters and bachelor’s in History from the University of New Orleans, and I studied Information Technology at the Instituto Tecnológico de Saltillo in Mexico.

What does your job entail? With Translate Nola, I mostly take care of PR and management, among other things. With having to attend law school I rely on my office manager for the everyday tasks, like taking requests and scheduling.

Why did you start this business? I have always been an interpreter. As a child, I interpreted for my mother and as a young adult I saw an immense need for competent interpreters in all fields, but especially in the legal and medical arena. I’ve always wanted to help out our immigrant community.

What does Translate Nola provide? We provide translation and interpretation services in over 20 languages.

Why should people choose Translate Nola?

Because we care about our clients and want to offer professional services at competitive prices, so in our case, you get more than what you pay for! We love to be of service and look forward to the opportunity to earn your trust.

What makes you proud about living and working in New Orleans? I love the opportunity to have this type of business in New Orleans because we have a strong diverse community.

Publisher's Note

We are beyond excited to feature Amanda Shaw on our June cover!

We love everything Amanda represents. Not many people are aware of her Latin heritage, and it’s hard to know about it from seeing her performances on stage and to see her love and amazing showcase of Louisiana’s music. So, it’s hard to imagine someone who is such a Louisiana icon grew up partaking in Guatemalan cultural traditions.

Featuring Amanda Shaw on Viva NOLA is a dream come true! It is individuals like her who represent exactly what we are trying to convey.

We are part of and love Louisiana. We enjoy its culture while also embracing our Latin heritage. We utilize our talents and skills to contribute to making our home a better place, and we serve as ambassadors of this region wherever we go.

This is what VIVA NOLA Magazine celebrates--a connection of cultures and communities. And who better than Amanda Shaw to perfectly tell the story of many of us who call New Orleans and Louisiana home.

Thank you, Amanda for opening your heart and sharing your story with us. You definitely make us proud!
