As a hearing member of a multi-generational deaf family in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, Gallaudet University was always a part of my life. However, I never expected to go there. During my senior year of high school, I began to consider my options–and I realized that Gallaudet might be the place for me. Not only was it as academically challenging as the other schools I considered, it was also a place where I could pursue my lifelong passion for soccer! I live on campus, I interact with deaf and hard of hearing peers 24/7, and yes, I am a defensive midfielder for the mighty Bison. Life is good! If you are hearing and a proficient signer, join me at Gallaudet. You’ll be glad you did.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
