solution by generously doubling my accom- modations, adding Communication Access Real-time Translation — a captioner typing everything said in class by the professor and students verbatim in real-time. WWM: What are your goals for life after Princeton? CL: Among my immediate options, I am con- sidering pursuing a physics Ph.D., concentrat- ing in the field of quantum information. I am fortunate that physics is one of the few truly universal scientific disciplines. Research can be communicated through the sharing of data and mathematical models regardless of the spoken languages of the researchers involved. I've experienced this firsthand — in high school when I visited a school for the Deaf in Jiujiang City, China and only understood the physics equations written on the board; then again during my research in Italy, when I worked alongside Italian physicists with limited English; and finally, at an international conference on quantum cryptography where I discussed my research with scientists from around the world. Because I cherish the Deaf community, I am committed to giving future generations of the Deaf more opportunities to achieve in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields. Just as previous generations advocated for accessibility for the Deaf, which enabled my success, I hope to continue to do the same and serve as a mentor and role model for those who follow me. 73 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s u m m e r 2 0 1 7
