Oh, Michelle! To tell you the truth I am not a huge fan of acronyms, ups! Maybe it could be a consequence of my last job experience because I had never been surrounded by thousands of acronyms inside a company before, it was crazy! I remember how I used to struggle with them UNTIL I decided to leave that company to persuade my dream of a career change.
Couple of months later, well, here I am 馃槉 studying English with you at Platzi and I could not be happier.
(BTW I did not know about the Oreo cookies 馃槷)
