Imogen ManuelDeaf, Imogen graduated with Joint Honours in Law and Criminology at Lancaster University in 2011. Currently taking a gap year travelling around South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Imogen plans to start her Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Bristol in September 2012 which she will be doing part-time as she hopes to find work as a full-time paralegal until she finishes her studies. Imogen is passionate about family law and criminal law, and hopes to specialise in one of these areas. Her overall goal would be to make all people aware that deafness is not a barrier and to become a role model for those who feel that they are living in 'a hearing world' that they are not part of.
