Graduate team Sajja and black lab guide dog Layla pose for their official graduation portrait on a blue background.

Originally from Nepal, Sajja now resides in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she is a PhD student at the University of Hawaii, studying Communications and Information Sciences. She has also earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree in Social Work from the same school. Her current studies focus on Audio Description, and she is working on a long-term project to audio describe brochures for all of the National Parks in the country. Sajja loves to read, walk and is a huge Loretta Lynn fan. She is very much looking forward to heading back to Hawaii, where her husband cannot wait to meet Layla!
