“Taking Marnie's summer intensive was one of the best decisions I've ever made. A few years ago, I took one that focused on Deaf actors and the Deaf culture. It immediately inspired me to pursue the language and even led to me booking a role on Switched At Birth! I highly recommend it! -Parker Harris
