DOMONIC: Why should you apply for the Youth Ambassador Program (YAP)? In 2018, when the NAD YAP was on the search for the next Youth Ambassador, the program focused on visibility and establishing a strategic plan for youth. This intrigued me. I told myself this was an opportunity for me to apply with the goal of establishing a mentorship program. I was accepted to participate in 2018 and won! I was shocked! At first, I did not know where to start. The NAD helped me work on my vision for the program, and not only that, my network expanded. I met new people in new places and other deaf youth. It has been a rich experience!
