How my career relates to my degree from RIT/NTID

My major relates to my job especially because of working with software that I learned during my studies at NTID. My time at NTID also taught me to be detail-oriented to meet the goals and needs of my customers – in this case who are often my coworkers. My studies prepared me and helped make me a better team member for my company and help achieve goals in a timely manner. I am a great multitasker!

Advice

I would say to them to believe in themselves. I always have believed in any student including those like myself who have usher’s syndrome. No matter what, if you stay positive, involved and pursue your dreams, you will find opportunities out there.
