Name: Lingyu Kong
Field of Study: Social Work
I was enrolled at Gallaudet in the Fall of 2014 and am expecting to graduate in May 2017. Currently, I am doing an internship at Project Create in Anacostia, as well as participating in the MuPi honor society and APIA. After I graduate, I plan to become a professional social worker. For the macro level, I will fully advocate for policy development, community education and empowerment of deaf and hard of hearing people. For the micro level, I will support and assist deaf and hard of hearing individuals to promote success in their lives. The Sasakawa International Scholarship provides financial assistance to ensure that I am able to continue my studies at Gallaudet University. I am grateful to the Nippon Foundation in assisting me so I can complete my degree as well as achieving my dream to advocate for the deaf community.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
