Education Path: Undecided

Winner of Marion Huber Learning Through Listening (LTL) Award for Student with a Learning Disability

Brian is a freshman at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations. He credits Learning Ally and other assistive technologies for helping him do well in school. After realizing the positive impact that technology had on him, he developed a passion for assistive technology. This passion led him to create an assistive technology blog, present on the value of technology for people with disabilities, and advocate for better legislation related to dyslexia at the state and federal level.

Brian is still exploring possible career paths, but hopes that his course work will provide a foundation to pursue a career in the disability field, finance, or human resources.
