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 ELI Student Organization as president. I graduated in 2014 with a major in Information Technology Systems.
My goal is to establish communication access and proper education opportunities for the Deaf community in Fiji. I look forward to doing projects that will benefit the deaf and 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 in Fiji, and how to produce new work opportunities for Deaf people in my country so that their unemployment rate will be lower.
The World Deaf Leadership scholarship has supported me a lot. Without this, my precious education would have not been completed here at Gallaudet. The scholarship gave me many opportunities, such as an internship, socialization with international students and American students, and participation in other programs.
