feat. She is being featured in this week’s Sports Illustrated

Pigmental Studios, which develops cartoons and animation for film,

its headquarters on the Gallaudet campus! It was made possible by
agreement with DC government, Pigmental officials and Gallaudet.
This studio is expected to employ 20 to 40 local people, hopefully
some of them deaf. Gallaudet was selected over several other cities
that wanted the studio! Where on the Gallaudet campus – same corner
spot where Stevens Chevrolet dealership was located (and which
