Gloria C. Izaguirre-Vargas, Gloria was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and has lived in NYC all her life. She is a CODA/SODA and the youngest of 7 children. Gloria became an ASL Interpreter after watching her big sister taking the lead in joining the profession. She has gone on to obtain her CI/CT, and in 2015 achieved a lifelong dream by acquiring her M.S. from Fordham University. Right after accepting a full-time position as a city-wide court interpreter, (again, good advice from her big sister) she joined Project CLIMB. She is excited about learning and growing. Gloria adores her family and passionately serves the Deaf Community through the local church.
