Why did you pick RIT/NTID? I picked RIT/NTID because I am interested in CAD drawing and pursuing an engineering degree. RIT/NTID is the best choice for me, so I can meet other deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as students from many different cultures and countries.

Clubs/ Activities: I am involved with track and field, intramural soccer and the Deaf International Students Association club.

Hobbies/ interest outside of activities: Hanging out with friends and playing soccer.

What is the best part about being here as RIT/NTID student athlete? I love competing against other college teams and being a part of a successful track team.

Favorite on-campus food spot: RITZ Sports Zone

Where do you do your homework? In my room, CADT labs, NTID Learning Center and Nathaniel Rochester Hall.

What’s your life motto? Work hard and never give up.
