I am very excited to start my second year at Ithaca College as an Integrated Marketing Communications Student with a minor in Deaf Studies. This semester I will be working with Guiding Eyes for the Blind, I will be attending class reviews to see what our guiding eye dogs learn. I look forward to becoming a certified handler.
For my group service project, I am co-facilitating this year’s Art Club at a local elementary school. Every Tuesday I will be with younger students as they explore their creative outlet with themed projects like thanksgiving turkeys. For my individual Service, I am going to volunteer at the Ithaca Tompkins County Public Library as a Youth Service Assistant. I will be Assisting the Staff and interacting with children and parents to make their visit more enjoyable.
I’m also looking forward to studying abroad in the Spring at IC London. The Park Scholarship has already awarded me with so many amazing opportunities and I can’t wait to seize every moment I can over the next three years.
