My Name is Snit Tewoldemedhin, I moved to the United States 4 years ago and I’m a senior neuroscience Student at George Mason University. I play basketball and Tennis and I enjoy dancing salsa sometimes. I speak 3 languages ( Italian, English and Tigrigna) fluently and 2, at an intermediate level ( Amharic and French). While doing my studies I’m also a teacher at a Montessori Preschool because I enjoy working with children.
My younger sister has Down’s Syndrome and has learning disabilities. Maria Montessori, the founder of the school I work in, inspired me with how she used her d
Doctorate position to create toys that are educational for children with special needs. Like her, I would love to use my Neuroscience degree as well as this platform to make connections and plan to open a school that primarily accommodates children like my sister. Just like we don’t expect a handicapped person in a wheelchair to go up the stairs, but instead we build wheelchair accessible buildings, I would love to make adjustments to our current curriculums and make them successfully achievable for children with special needs. Join me in this journey to make a difference in the lives of children and most especially children with disabilities.
