Jessica Carter ’13 had a comfortable corporate job for six years that she left to fulfill a dream to be a first generation college graduate and study American Sign Language. She was content in her job until she met a group of deaf people and remembered the joy she had as a child learning sign language to communicate with deaf children in her school. As she spent more time with them, she realized she needed to follow her dreams.
