My name is Connie Chun Yi Lo. I was born on 18 September 1978; I was born Deaf and grew up in Hong Kong. I graduated from The Hong Kong School for the Deaf. After graduation, I used to work at my uncle’s company as clerk. I started my study in 2000 at Ohlone College in San Francisco for General Education. In 2002, I transferred to the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and continued my study for three years. I have earned my Associate of Arts Degree in the discipline of New Media.
Now, I am working as Junior Language Research Assistant at the Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies in the Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages, Chinese University of Hong Kong. My major duties include materials production, sign language data collection processing and teaching sign language. In addition, I have been actively participating in activities for the Deaf community as a volunteer, including activities in the Agape Love Deaf International and Silence Association. From 1998 to 2000, I was involved in the Design Committee in the Hong Kong School for the Deaf Alumni Association.
I am also interested in sign language research, including topics related to morphology, syntax, Deaf history, non-manuals, and historical changes of signs.
My personal interests are swimming, surfing, basketball, travelling, photography, and reading comics.
