Ambitions for DHI: I’m interested in reaching out to our younger deaf peers and tell them about Deaf History International. Deaf history, which is a study of deaf people in the past, is also important to our identity as deaf people, learning about the efforts that people before us lived and worked, and learning about the achievements that are so important for tomorrow’s deaf youth as they look to the past for guidance.  Everyone can participate in preserving and recording deaf history in their own ways.
