Brianna C. Keogh, alumna of Gallaudet University ’19, provides access and supports the deaf ecosystem in her jobs at deaf-owned and operated businesses DPAN.TV and Mozzeria. In addition to doing what she loves, she enjoys going on long walks (with dogs if possible!), updating her blog, reading books, and cherishing the magic of human connection, storytelling, and community. She has always loved reading and telling stories from a young age, as well as lifelong learning, and strongly believes in each person and story’s ability to make an impact on the world.

Victoria Covell will be a 4th-year majoring in Graphic Design with a minor in Mobile Design and Development at Rochester Institute of Technology. She is from Jacksonville, Illinois. Victoria danced at Sara’s Studio of Dance for fifteen years and participated in the studio’s Dance Company and Competition. She attended a number of dance conventions and competitions including Revolution Nationals in Chicago (2013) where she took first place in her solo age group and fifth overall. Victoria has performed in The Nutcracker for the Springfield Ballet company, Morgan County Fair Talent Show placing third. In addition, Victoria has performed at the Statue of Liberty in New York city, with the Harlem Globetrotters, and at Disneyland in California. In her senior year of high school, Victoria presented the piece, I Am, to the world. She qualified for nationals in Daytona Beach, Florida, earning a platinum score, but more importantly she shared her message with a wider audience. On April 27 , 2018, Victoria competed in Dr. Munson’s Performing Arts Competition at the annual Imagine RIT Festival where she won first place sharing her story with her RIT family. As her YouTube video continues to be shared and viewed worldwide, her hope is that people will see, despite having a profound hearing loss or any hearing loss at all, that deaf and hard of hearing individuals can enjoy music and dance.
