Tilden Student Impresses Pop Star, Shawn Mendes, with her ASL skills!

Last year, Julia Villano, a student at Tilden’s Walnut Creek campus, performed the song, Never Be Alone by Shawn Mendes, using only American Sign Language (which she, of course, learned at Tilden!)

We just found out that Julia had a chance to meet Shawn Mendes and show him her video. Naturally, he loved it!

We are so proud of Julia and impressed with not only her skills in American Sign Language, but also her confidence to show the world what she can do, and share her translation with the original artist.
