It's a sign
Fifteen years ago, as a freshman at Montclair State, Policelli wanted to take American Sign Language but at that time, she says, seniors and athletes had first dibs on the course. She started talking to one of her classmates, a softball player, about it. “She offered to sign up for the class and then drop it so I could get her spot.”
As it turned out, the class had such an impact on Policelli that she minored in ASL and later went back to school to become an interpreter. She worked as an interpreter and now teaches ASL to middle schoolers.
