I had two great weekends with my dad flying up to visit me for my Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar Award ceremony and dinner. It was an honor to have received this award as one of four deaf recipients and attend this special occasion with my closest friends, colleagues, and my dad. You can see the three other fellows who received this award here.
This past weekend, after the NTID Spring Open House and meeting some pretty awesome students who will be coming in the Fall, I drove home to Maryland. I drove down approximately seven hours with a couple of friends to visit Academic Bowl at Gallaudet University and attend a baby shower of an old friend I’ve known since I was a toddler. Her sister contacted me and asked me to come down and surprise her at the shower. We both saw and could not let go of each other; it has been too long. The last time I saw her was probably 10-plus years ago and we were always so tight like twin sisters. The whole seven-hour drive was truly worth it and I hope to see her again! The picture below proves that no matter how long it has been, the love is always there.
