Alberto Sosa teaches American Sign Language. He earned his Bachelors of Science degree in Human Development from Binghamton University and a Masters in American Sign Language as a Foreign Language from Columbia University. Alberto has always considered American Sign Language his first language. Picking up sign language as a child was not a convenience for Sosa. It was a necessity, as both of his parents are Deaf.
It wasn’t until his sophomore year that he realized his first language could be his future. When not developing his Deaf communication skills, Alberto serves as community service chairman for Lambda Upsilon Lambda fraternity and tutors three days a week for the Educational Opportunity Program. Alberto was one of 20 U.S. students selected by the Orphan Foundation of America to take part in Intern America. As a mentor and instructor here at Fusion Academy, he hopes to serve as an asset to the growth and development to serve others to maximize their experience in the field of Deaf culture, its community, and language.
