Katy's Dream

Katy had a vision to give others a voice. Here, in her own words, is her dream...

"As a speech and Hearing sciences major, we learn right away about the importance of language. However, it wasn’t until I began to study communication disorders, and witness what happens when people lose their ability to communicate, that I began to fully understand the true impact that language has. It is the fundamental medium that allows us to form lasting bonds with one another. Without it, we are unable to inform the people around us of what we feel, what we desire, and to question/understand the world around us. I realized that similar struggles arise amongst people of different cultures. Without a common language, so many things we wish to express can get lost in translation, and in turn prevent us from breaking down barriers and becoming more culturally sensitive, citizens of the world. My dream is to help facilitate communication in all forms, in both my potential future as a speech-language pathologist and in my adventures teaching abroad."
