Annahi Colin

American Sign Language Teacher/Mentor

California State University of Northridge, B.A. Deaf Studies with a Concentration in Deaf Literature

Annahi is a new member of the Fusion family, as the new American Sign Language teacher and as a mentor as well.

She earned a degree from California State University of Northridge in Deaf Studies with a concentration in Deaf Literature in efforts to become a High School Sign Language Teacher. She is the first in her family to earn a Bachelor’s degree and to obtain a job in her field. This is her first year as an ASL teacher, and eager to increase her teaching experience here at Fusion.

Annahi’s life goal is to start up a Sign Language Program at her old High School and teach ASL. Teaching young adults and exposing them to the Deaf World is her passion. The more people know about the Deaf community the more Hearing people become advocators for the Deaf Community. In accomplishing this, the barrier between miscommunication will no longer exist. This is why she wants to teach, but teaching ASL is not the only thing Annahi enjoys doing; she is also a Youth Leader at her local church; mentoring young adults and organizing events for outreach purposes.

Annahi wants to make a difference in the Hearing World to support the Deaf Community and teaching here at Fusion gets her one step closer to that goal.

Hobbies: Outdoor activities, dancing, going to concerts, spending time with family & friends, and love to eat food!
