STEM Curriculum Writer

John Hamill is a senior at the University of Minnesota studying the classics with an emphasis on the Latin language and Roman literature. He is a technical writer access assistant for Dr. Mona Minkara who encouraged his involvement with Empowerment Through Integration. Each day he sees the struggles that those with visual disabilities face in the field of science. If working for Dr. Minkara has taught him anything, it is that people do not need sight in order to have a pictorial perception of the world and a vision to contribute to its greatness. This realization has given him the passion to work toward educating a greater populace and introducing those to the true wonders of science.
