Country: Sri Lankia
Field of Study: Education
My name is Chaminda Prabodha Hewapathirana. My family is from Sri Lanka, where I grew up. I first came to America on January 9th, 2007 to Gallaudet University.Gallaudet University is great for the education of the deaf. I am currently studying for my BA degree and want to become a teacher for deaf children and deaf families.
My dream is for deaf people in my country to be able to succeed in their education. Together we will work hard to teach deaf children in any school.
I want to honestly say thank you to the SASAKAWA Scholarship for supporting my education at Gallaudet University. The scholarship has been a very important part of my life; not only has it been most helpful to me educationally, but it has also contributed to my personal happiness which in turn enables me to study hard to maintain a good GPA so that I may obtain my degree.
