Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a sophomore at Yale majoring in cognitive science with a focus in education. I have a passion for American Sign Language, deaf studies, and deaf culture. I'm from DC and take classes at Gallaudet University (the only liberal arts university for the deaf in the world) every summer. I also have a variety of interests in other languages, linguistics, mathematics, medicine, the outdoors, running, gymnastics, and music.
