Meet Philip

Hello, I’m Philip Wismer. I’m a 32 year old Deaf-Blind man with low vision and I was born with CHARGE syndrome. I currently attend Gallaudet University, majoring in Information Technology. I grew up in a small town in Southeast PA called Doylestown. I graduated from high school – Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf in Pittsburgh – in 2007.

My dream is to become an advocate for the Deaf community in the technical field after I graduate from Gallaudet. I enjoy playing games with my friends and hanging out with friends. I currently work for Amazon as a Prime Now personal shopper at Whole Foods in Washington DC.
