Grace

Hi, My name is Grace Sherman! I am a junior American Sign Language Interpreting major at Kent State University with a double minor in Disability Studies and Communication Studies. I am the acting president of the ASL Club and work at the Instructional Recourse Center on campus. I am originally from Pennsylvania and grew up there with my family of 6. I first was introduced to American Sign Language by my mom's career, she has been employed by many school districts to work with their neurodivergent, deaf, or blind students and is now a Social Worker. We both began working at the Special Olympics, Autism Conference, Deaf/Blind Conference, and Low Incidents Conference and fell in love with it. I started taking ASL Classes in high school and knew that once I graduated, I wanted to be an interpreter. I found Kent State and knew it was the perfect fit and has helped me achieve all my goals since I began!
