Gallaudet University has given me many opportunities to develop my career. Student organizations, paraprofessional jobs, and an internship at the Association of University centers on Disabilities helped lead me to my current position. My job at the Department of Homeland Security would not be possible without the education and work experience I received at Gallaudet University. My advice to students: Start networking as early as you can! Once you build a reputation and develop the right contacts, many great opportunities will come your way.
