“If you feel like your anxiety is really bad or if you have a disability, don’t let that bring you down. If you don’t try, you’ll never know! I might be deaf, but because you’ve got disabilities it doesn’t make you different to anybody else.”
“I thought I was coming to college for education, but I got so much more than that: friendships, support, independence, guidance and a push when I needed it. I have had such an amazing journey here.”
