I started off in a mainstream program until the third grade when I then attended the Louisiana School for the Deaf. I first heard about RIT/NTID through their call for student competitors for the NTID Math Competition. When the time came for me to choose a college, I had multiple staff and RIT/NTID alumni tell me about RIT, so I decided to do some research. With that research, I found that RIT/NTID was filled with an assortment of diverse individuals, people from many cultures, a mixture of deaf and hearing, along with interpreting students and interpreters. I wanted to work in the medical field and saw how the MIS program at RIT could bring me there. I’m involved in a number of clubs and organizations on campus such as NTID Student Assembly, Sigma Nu Fraternity, Latin American Deaf Club, Ebony Club, and have been involved in several theater performances – with “Cabaret” being my favorite! RIT/NTID is the right fit for me because of the large spectrum of creative arts, accessibility, cultural diversity, social life, and opportunities for professional growth.
