I would like to share with you an artcle published in the New Yorker about a young Deaf Blind woman named Rebecca Alexander, who is 29 like me.
I think this article is another prime example how many DB people out there are leading extraordinary lives. There are so many leaders, accomplished people out there that many others don’t know exist.
Rebecca is slightly different than I, she doesn’t seem to foster sign language skills and I do, but I still admire her very much for her courage to live in New York City, to live a full life. I would love to meet her someday, however, communicating will prove to be a little difficult. There’ll always be a way.
Enjoy the article, people, and educate-empower-experience is the key with the Deaf Blind world.
