I went to high school at California School for the Deaf, Fremont and loved it there. I was very involved in high school and wanted those same opportunities in college. When I started my college search, I asked my friends who attend RIT what they had to say about the college. I also did other research because I wanted to find the best university to pursue my major and prepare me for my future. I finally decided to travel across the country and attend RIT because I felt it offered the right resources to help me be successful. Now that I’m here, I like the mainstream environment. I get access to full communication, and learning on a mainstream campus is new and exciting for me. I feel comfortable here just like in high school. I’m involved in different clubs and organizations, and that is helping me develop new skills.
