2016-2017 Scholarship Award Winner
2015-2016 Scholarship Award Winner
Going into the Spring 2015 semester, I made the tough decision to quit my job to focus solely on the interpreting program. I wanted the ability to accept as many learning opportunities as were offered to me, and as a result have had the chance to continuously volunteer at various events including some outside of Austin, immerse myself more in the Deaf community, network with professional interpreters, and work on developing my own interpreting skills. I also currently serve as the President for ASL Friends United, where I assist in developing events relating to the study of ASL/interpreting and the Deaf community. In addition, I have been able to join a group of internship students that will be participating in a study abroad trip next Spring, and help to coordinate fundraising efforts for trip expenses. The ASLIT scholarship has helped to alleviate some of the financial hardships of taking the time to be involved in these different capacities. I am truly grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given by being a part of this program, and look forward to the many more to come.
