A Look At A Day In The Life Of A Deaf Person

I just finished assisting the 15th Annual Hear Here funfest for kids in Whitby, ON, raising funds to purchase hearing aids in families who might not be able to afford the high cost. I’m glad I found these two videos, as they remind me (as if I needed it, I wear hearing aids in both ears), what daily life is like for a deaf person. Rachel Soudakoff produced and edited this compelling video one, highlighting Ren who is deaf.

Here’s Ren reciting her poem “Eleven Things You Should Know About Deaf People” at the Summer Slam Poetry Camp at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN.
