I attended a School for the Deaf, so when I was looking for colleges I wanted access to deaf and hard-of-hearing people and individuals who would support me like I had growing up. At RIT I found a community of people to connect with and lean upon. RIT is providing me with many opportunities to help me be successful. The hands-on experience I got in 3D modeling in Revit and 2D modeling in AutoCad prepared me well for my co-op as an engineering intern at the City of Leawood Public Works Department. I was able to take what I learned in the classroom and apply it to real-world projects. RIT is giving me an amazing opportunity to achieve the goals I set for myself.
