I traveled more than 8,000 miles from home to get a degree from a college that specializes in working with deaf students. I did a co-op where I worked as a multimedia designer, photographer and videographer. The coursework in my major like typography and graphic design, production workshop, and Raster and Vector graphics applied directly to the work I did. Co-op helped me build a strong portfolio of original work that is sure to help me land a job upon graduation. Coming to RIT has given me the opportunity to return home with a degree I wanted and the skills necessary to pursue a successful career in graphic design.
