About That Deaf Girl

I get several questions from readers about my blog.

I’m here to advocate for deaf/HOH community, influencing others to gain perspective on deafness, show some of the daily struggles not only with deafness but in every day life.

I know what it feels like to be alone in a crazy diverse world.

I know what it’s like to feel like to be a “burden”. That load on your shoulder is heavy.

I know what it feels like to be helpless. The look in other people’s eyes can be deceiving but don’t let it.

It doesn’t matter how deaf you are, how you speak or sign. It’s really okay.

You may be learning how to pronounce a word, learning how to sign, or learning how to hear. We are constantly educating ourselves every day.

Others should do the same. For us.

Be the best part of you. Embrace it. Be that deaf person.
