What is the most interesting class you have taken in your studies?
- American Sign Language. My teacher was deaf, so he communicated primarily through signing. Taking this class not only gave me an enormous appreciation for the deaf community, but also taught me how important non-verbal communication is. I believe ASL should be included as one of the language classes taught in schools.
What do you love about working at BCP?
- I feel extremely lucky to work with and for such genuine people. No matter what your position is here, everyone makes it a point to support one another. You don’t find that just anywhere.
If you could live in any part of the world’s history, what would it be?
- I would definitely live in the 70’s. Everything seemed so simple and carefree back then. No cellphones, no social media, just old-fashioned fun!
