Gooooood evening! Happy Easter or Happy Passover!

For Easter, I was not able to go home. Even though I wish I could but 6 hours is really far and it would be a short trip home. I would not want to miss class so I have missed Easter in the past three years. This is my fourth. However, I met a friend, Katie (she’s in the picture with me on the left of the photo) last fall and we have become very close friends. She then later became one of my best friends.

She asked me, “What are you doing for Easter?!”

I said’ “Nothing. Probably watching TV, doing homework”.

So after her hearing that, she invited me to her aunt’s house. I went today and it was delicious! Different too. I had ham with mashed potatoes, devil eggs, rolls, along with appetizers like buffalo dip, and spinach & artichokes dip. Good stuff, right? Of course, it’s nothing like home but I’m happy that that I was invited to come over for dinner. I assume that Katie didn’t like the idea that I couldn’t spend time with my family so I was able to spend time with hers.

So, you’re probably wondering what the other picture is. It’s all the food that they gave me along with a sparkling bottle and my Easter basket from Katie. Thank you so much!

Overall, I had a good Easter and I ended up watching a little bit of basketball. March Madness! But then I couldn’t watch anymore when a player broke his leg from jumping back down too hard. Ouch.

Anyways, Happy Easter and/or Passover!

Til next time!

PS. Enjoy the scenery in this photo. I was at a winery for a formal Saturday night and the gentleman who invited me, we both just made it in time to see the sunset. Just beautiful.

About Stephanie

Major: International Hospitality and Service Management

Hometown: Jackson, N.J.

Why I Chose RIT: I chose RIT for a few reasons. One reason is because of the outstanding access services. RIT has more than 100 interpreters on campus that are available for classes, events and meetings for clubs and organizations. Another reason is that I am a big hockey fan and both RIT men’s and women's hockey teams are Division I. I bleed orange and brown (RIT’s school colors)! Also, the RIT community is amazing. We get so much support from everyone, and I like that the campus is diverse.

Clubs/Activities: I am involved with DBA (Deaf Basketball Association), and assistant chairperson of Brickfest, a traditional sports competition weekend among deaf students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy dancing, listening to music, reading, shopping, learning, watching movies and hanging out with my friends.

What I Like Best About RIT: What I like best about RIT is the outstanding diversity we have on campus. I am able to fit in both the deaf and hearing worlds because I come from a hearing family. I like the fact that I am able use both languages that I was taught growing up—English and American Sign Language.

Favorite T.V. Show: I don't have one, but I enjoy watching T.V. shows on the TLC channel.

Fun fact about me: I've been to more Caribbean islands than individual states in the U.S., because I’ve taken nine cruises.
