check out Kevin Frost, speedskating extraordinaire from Ottawa, Canada – his story is beyond amazing. He has Usher Syndrome and aims for the Olympics! Unreal, eh?
I live less than an hour away from him. For sure I’ll be getting in touch with him to ask him out for coffee. I heard about Kevin a couple years ago when I had just started to put my foot in the deafblind community pool and to this day I still get emails from a lot of deaf-blind people asking if I knew him. Since I’m off from school and job placements pending, I thought to myself: now is the time.
I’ll let you know if we actually meet. I need to meet more awesome, inspiring Deafblind people who want to change the world and change the way others ‘see’ the world and ‘us’.
Mr. Frost, you rock, man.
Here’s a tactile love shout out to Mr. Frost and good luck.
