Natnail was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and lived there for the first seven years of his life. Natnail’s whole life turned upside down when he learned he was going to live in the United States. Natnail went to several mainstream schools during his elementary years until he finally enrolled in Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) during his middle school years. He grew up in Maryland and attended Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD). Natnail was very involved in the MSSD community: he was a Jr. NAD Vice President, worked for the athletic department, was the secretary and student advisor for the Class of 2020, and played sports. Natnail graduated MSSD in Spring 2020 and is currently a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology/National Technical Institute for the Deaf (RIT/NTID).
Annabelle was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and went to Arkansas School for the Deaf briefly. Later, she moved to Austin, Texas, and now attends the Texas School for the Deaf. Growing up, she was involved with volleyball, basketball, and softball. Annabelle was Student Council President in the 5th grade, for the entire school. In middle school, she continued to be involved with the Student Council. In High School, she joined Jr. NAD and has been a member for three years now. She enjoys being on many committees. She was a chairperson for the prom in May 2020. Annabelle loves going out and seeking nature, volunteering for many school events, helping out many different things, and many more! She loves to listen to music and translate them into ASL! As a Jr. NAD Youth Ambassador, Annabelle’s goal is to raise the awareness of diversity in my school and all over the U.S. She would like to attend either Gallaudet University or the University of Texas. In ten years, she sees herself working in the Public Health field and working with the NAD.
