Spring Break and Spring Quarter

Top of the Morning to you! (As my Nanny (Grandmother but she prefers Nanny) always says :D)

I am back from spring break! Well, I think it’s a little late, I mean, we enter the 3rd week of class tomorrow. Oops?

Although some of my fellow NTID Ambassadors went someplace warm, I went home and spent time with my family. I also had an interview with ESPN in New York City for an internship/co-op this summer. It went great although they were looking for someone who would do event marketing. Unfortunately, I do event planning. I was sad to hear that but at least I got the experience of an interview with someone who works in a high level job, I mean, come on… ESPN, wow!

However, I am now currently looking for other internship/co-ops in the Northeast. I originally wanted to go out West (because I’ve never been out there) but I got asked to be in a wedding this coming August so I am staying regional. However, next summer, I’ll need one more internship/co-op in order to graduate, and I plan to go out West and experience the culture out there. I am excited to see what is different out there. I’ve heard from a lot of people that the West is different from the East. Well, I hope to find out next year!

That is all for now and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

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.
