Name: Victor J. Cornejo

Country: Peru

Field of Study: Mathematics and Accounting

My name is Victor J. Cornejo, and I am a 28-year-old Peruvian student. I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Mathematics and Accounting. My goals are to become a teacher of mathematics, and I plan to take the Certified Public Accountant examination. I plan to help Deaf people from other countries who want to continue their education but have not had the opportunity, for various reasons. These deaf people are often discriminated against and are without support. I want to be there to help them overcome and/or remove any barriers. I would like to set up an office serving deaf people in those places.

My project for the Sasakawa Scholarship was serving as a student ambassador, helping new international students in Gallaudet's English Language Institute adapt to university life. Some of my tasks included helping the new international students fill out immigration forms, teaching them about Gallaudet health insurance, and helping them get used to dorm life. There was also an instance where a student needed to go to the hospital, and I was there to take him.

The Sasakawa scholarship has provided me with the opportunity to further my education towards my degree. Working on the Sasakawa Scholarship project has allowed me to learn about the field of International Education and to help international students succeed in their pursuit of higher education.
