World Deaf Leadership
Name: Krishneer Sen
Field of Study: Computer Information Systems
I am Krishneer Sen from Suva, Fiji in the South Pacific. I came to Gallaudet University in January, 2010 as an English Language Institute (ELI) student. I am still running the English Language Institute Student Organization as a president. I am currently an undergraduate student at Gallaudet University majoring in Information Technology Systems. I am expecting to graduate in 2014.
My goal is to establish communication access and proper education opportunities for the Deaf community in Fiji. After my graduation, I look forward to doing the projects that will benefit the Deaf & Hard of Hearing Community in Fiji.
I plan to be an activist and communication advocate for the Deaf Community in Fiji and around the world. I am thinking about how to develop more educational opportunities for Deaf students and how to produce new work opportunities for the Deaf people in Fiji so that the unemployment rate would be lower.
The World Deaf Leadership (WDL) scholarship has supported me a lot. Without this, my precious education would have not been completed here at Gallaudet. The scholarship gives me many opportunities such as an internship, socialization with international students and American students, and participation in other programs.
