Gallaudet has give me the opportunity to prove myself as an deaf individual, not only to my family, to the society as well. Not only opportunities poured in, the communication at Gallaudet has made it accessible for the deaf students. I can say I fell in love with Gallaudet and am proud to call myself deaf.
