Going to the Speech-Language-Hearing Association of Virginia (SHAV) 2018 Conference was quite the experience. For the past few months, we have all been working diligently on perfecting our posters and presenting skills. Turns out all of that hard work paid off because Jalyn Taylor, Seraphina Chabinec, and I won first place for student poster presentations! Through my presenting at SHAV, I learned how to be confident in my work, and converse with professionals about my research in a professional way. I was also able to attend multiple sessions that not only taught me about topics that will impact my future practice, but that also got me excited about the career I have chosen. Let me know if you need some information about over-the-counter hearing aids!
