Like No Other Place
There is no other university where challenging degree programs are incorporated with Christian values. For this reason Sallie Leslie chose to attend Baylor University. “Baylor’s campus gives me the feeling of going to a large university with a diverse population but also the sense of belonging to a tight-knit family,” Sallie says.
Up for the Challenge
Sallie has always been driven by her desire to help those who are hurting and make a difference in their lives. Through speech pathology, Sallie is fulfilled knowing she is working toward a goal that will help someone in a personal struggle.
Sallie’s minor, sign language interpreting, is a challenge to her every day. “Never before has a subject matter been so stimulating, yet so frustrating at the same time,” she says. Mastering this language and communicating in the deaf culture is what drives Sallie each day.
Busy at Baylor and Beyond
Sallie is a member of Delta Delta Delta and serves as assistant membership chair. She is a group leader for Reflections, a body image program, and a member of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Sallie is also a William Carey Crane Scholar.
For the summer of 2010, Sallie has secured an internship at Lake Regional Health Systems in Missouri. She will be shadowing a team of speech pathologists, “This will be great practical experience in my field and I am looking forward to it,” says Sallie.
