Meet Leslie Williams and Chi Man “Chloe” Ho, who were selected as the 2016 NTID College delegates. Delegates are selected based on their academic standing and give a speech at NTID’s commencement.

Leslie Williams is NTID’s undergraduate delegate. A student in the laboratory, science technology associate degree program, she knew she wanted to attend RIT since elementary school and be a part of the deaf community in Rochester. Williams, from Chicago, Illinois, is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Following graduation, she plans to enroll in RIT’s College of Health Sciences and Technology and pursue a bachelor’s degree in diagnostic medical sonography.

After earning her master’s degree in secondary education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing, Chloe Ho, NTID’s graduate delegate, will return to her hometown of Hong Kong. Prior to coming to RIT, Ho worked in sign bilingualism and co-enrollment in the deaf education program run by the Center for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is the first program in Asia applying this specific educational model to enhance inclusion of both deaf and hearing students in a mainstream school setting. She will return to the program following graduation. She is excited to contribute the experiences and knowledge she gained at RIT to the field of deaf education there.
