Signs of Victory for Tri-C Deaf Interpretive Services Grad
Rachel Grabisna wins Medina County Fair talent show while signing song
Rachel Grabisna left the Medina County Fair with a trophy after flashing signs of the talent she honed earning a degree at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
She won the fair’s talent show while using sign language to perform the song “This Is Me” from the 2017 film The Greatest Showman. Grabisna graduated from Tri-C in May with an Associate of Applied Science degree in deaf interpretive services.
The Gazette newspaper described her award-winning act as “unlike anything from the usual song and dance.”
Grabisna told Gazette reporter Christine Jenkinson that she began teaching herself sign language while in elementary school. As a baby, she said she learned to sign “I love you” from her father.
The North Royalton resident plans to attend Kent State University in the fall to become an interpreter.
