Country: Sri Lankia

Field of Study: Education

My name is Chaminda Prabodha Hewapathirana and I am from Sri Lanka. I came to America in January 2007 to attend Gallaudet University, a great place for deaf people to receive an education. I am studying for my Bachelor's degree, and I want to become a teacher of deaf children and deaf families.

My dream is for deaf people in my country to be able to get an education and succeed.

I want to honestly say thank you to the Nippon Foundation for my Sasakawa Scholarship, which has supported 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, it has contributed to my personal happiness. This in turn enables me to study hard and maintain a good grade point average.
