This image shows a banner that reads " #DeafSuccess" suspended between two pools. There is an illustration of thirteen people from different races, gender, and ethnicity standing together just below the banner.

You’ve made it! From all of us at the National Deaf Center, we celebrate all your hard work towards this great achievement. We know how difficult this past year has been and all the challenges you faced while working toward achieving your goals. You kept moving forward, even though the uncertainty of the pandemic. That is much to be celebrated as you step into this next part of your journey.

Dream Big. Be Brave. Never Give Up.
