I am stepping down from HLAAKC’s Steering Committee at the end of this month. I have enjoyed my time on the committee and have enjoyed getting to know all of you!
I have been offered the opportunity to serve in the Peace Corps. I am leaving for Kenya in October where I will have training for 3 months before staring my 24 month service. I will be a Deaf Educator and a Behavior Communicator.
I will be a teacher at a school for the deaf in Kenya. I will also be working with the deaf/hard-of-hearing community to increase AIDS/HIV awareness and prevention. I will also be given the opportunity to develop a project of my own. As a genetic counselor I am hoping to develop a project that ties in with genetics.
You can be sure I will continue to follow this blog, I am excited for HLAAKC’s future!
