Sasakawa International Scholarship
Name: Rani Alameh
Field of Study: Graphic Design
My name is Rani Alameh. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1978. I graduated from Gallaudet University in May 2010 with a major in Graphic Design. My goal was to learn all I could from Gallaudet, and apply my knowledge to the real world. I hope to apply my Graphic Design skills in a fun and rewarding job and gradually improve those skills. I want to be a successful, contributing member of society. I also want to be able to help other deaf students in my community. The Sasakawa Scholarship has helped me in pursuing these goals.
My Sasakawa Scholarship project was to contribute to the World Deaf Information Resource Project http://cips.gallaudet.edu/site-map.xml. This is a major project undertaken by the Center for International Program and Services. This website can help you find contact information for deaf organizations on the international, national, and local levels in about 150 countries. You also can find information resources of interest to deaf individuals, deaf organizations, and others who work with them. My tasks were to collect information on resources for deaf people and deaf organizations in Lebanon.
