Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Standout Student Videos

Standout Student: Stefanie Kitsos

Stefanie Kitsos is a senior from Long Island who is majoring in Speech Pathology. Since high school, Stefanie has needed to wear hearing aids in both ears. After feeling self-conscious about her hearing loss for many years, Stefanie decided to seek a major in the Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, so she could dedicate her professional life to helping others with similar struggles. She now sees her hearing loss as a source of strength. She encourages others – whether they are children or elderly people dealing with hearing issues – to set high goals for themselves and embrace new technologies and therapies that can greatly improve their quality of life.
