I am in the Communication Disorders graduate program at Truman. During my time here, I have been able to serve multiple individuals of a variety of ages in the Truman State University Speech and Hearing Clinic. I have also had the opportunity to study abroad with my department in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where we provided hearing and speech screenings to children in orphanages, a school and daycare for children with disabilities. After graduation I plan to return home to Lincoln, Nebraska, where I would like to work as a speech therapist in a school setting. As an out-of-state student, this scholarship really helps me out!
