Name: Yexin Lin
Field of Study: Mathematics
My name is Yexin Lin and I am from Shanghai, China. I have attended Gallaudet University since the Fall of 2014. I am currently a second-year student at Gallaudet University and major in Mathematics. I am particularly interested in pursuing a career in which I can use mathematical skills to teach and help students solve difficult questions. My dream is to become a math teacher, I will fight hard for the dream. I will study in mathematics in a Master's program, and plan to obtain teacher certification. I am good at mental arithmetic and complicated mathematical formulas, and I can simplify difficult things in order to explain to students and make them understand with ease. Although it is still a long way, I know how to get there. Next spring I will apply work in Tutorial and Instructional Programs at Gallaudet to collect important work experience.
After graduating, I would like to return to Shanghai and support the deaf community. Above all, I am excited that I can learn American Sign Language and communicate with students coming from different backgrounds. What a wonderful experience at Gallaudet!
Getting the Sasakawa International Scholarship is the greatest honor in my life as a student. This program not only helped decrease my family's financial burden, most importantly it also encourages me to work hard that my wishes come true.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
