I HAD AN AMAZING TIME THIS PAST WEEKEND! I don’t know which was my favorite: going to Niagara Falls with many of my family members who visited from out of state, visiting Corning’s glass blowing exhibit, taking my brother to Java Wally’s on campus, or treating the family to outstanding carrot cake, made in Rochester!
We were all excited about the day trip to Niagara Falls, because for the second time this winter, the polar vortex created amazing cave like formations, where the steam arose from the plunging waterfalls. Walkways I trod last April were closed due to deep snow. Below is a picture with some of my family members spelling “Frozen” to remember this family adventure.
This past weekend I performed my final college theater performance as “Lola” in Damn Yankees. My favorite part was my entrance on stage, because I got to ride on top of a red car, along with my amazing voice actress. What I really like about NTID Panara Theater, and what I will TRULY miss, is that I enjoy the opportunity to interact with students and community members. In this positive atmosphere, deaf, hard-of hearing and hearing work together on a project that may not be related to their primary studies. I signed my lines, while my hearing partner (who happens to be majoring in electrical engineering) voices or sings what I am signing. What’s even more fun is that my voice actress and I synchronized our dance, making me feel that we were mirrored twins.
