Applications and Forms

Name: Kaneng Rose Kwandi

Country: Nigeria

Field of Study: Deaf Education

My name is Kaneng Rose Kwandi, and I am from Nigeria. I was born in Kuru, Plateau State of Nigeria, on January 5, 1977. I received my primary education in Kuru, and my secondary education at Plateau School for the Deaf, Jos.

I came to Gallaudet University as a President's Scholar in the fall of 2003. In the fall of 2004, I was awarded the prestigious Nippon World Deaf Leadership (WDL) scholarship. My WDL project was titled "Center for Advocacy, Job Development, and Information on Deafness." My project was announced by Plateau State Radio Corporation of Nigeria in 2006. For this project, I conducted a feasibility study, analyzed the results, and gave a presentation to the Gallaudet community. I graduated with my master's degree in Deaf Education on May 15, 2009.

I did post-master's training in Deaf Education at the Phoenix Day School for the Deaf, Phoenix, Ariz., teaching deaf and hard of hearing 4th graders with multiple learning disabilities who are from diverse socio-cultural backgrounds.

I am forever grateful to Nippon and the WDL scholarship program for the support they gave me while completing my undergraduate and graduate programs in Deaf Education at Gallaudet.
