Last week was a bit hectic after a very relaxing break, but this week I definitely feel like I’m getting back into the swing of things for my last few weeks here at RIT/NTID. I’m graduating in February and all of the sudden it seems like time flew by!
As a fourth year interpreting student we are required to do two practicums. Last quarter I worked here at RIT in the department of access services. It was a great experience and my mentor was incredible. This quarter, I’m working out in the community and I’m absolutely falling in love with the work. I get to meet so many different kinds of people and every day is different. It’s really fun work.
I’m also starting to train my replacement here in the admissions office. We’ll call her “the new girl.” She can introduce herself on here once I’m gone. I’ll let her make her own debut 🙂 She’s great. I have no doubt that she’s going to do a great job.
It’s exciting to be getting close to graduation, but its also pretty intimidating. I’m looking forward to getting out there, but I’m definitely going to miss this place like crazy!
