National Leadership Program, Summer 2016
Annie Tohill was a Communications Fellow at RespectAbility. An animation major, she is a rising junior at Regent University. Thanks to her experiences with chronic illness and autism, Tohill has become passionate about disability issues.
Tohill edited several videos during her Fellowship, ensuring that all had proper captions to be accessible for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. In addition, she wrote several press releases leading up to the second season premiere of A&E’s Emmy-nominated show Born This Way.
Prior to joining RespectAbility, she worked on multiple short films, including two collaborative projects and a mock title sequence that incorporated hand drawn animation. She’s thrilled to work at RespectAbility to work to reduce the stigma around disability through media, in particular video.
