“Opening our Ears to the Deaf”

Approximately 17% of Americans (36 million people) are deaf or hard of hearing. Still, much of the hearing population would say they never interact with the deaf. The deaf have separated themselves from the hearing, why? Our discrimination and lack of understanding of deaf culture. About Pamela: Born and raised in Columbia, Pamela graduated from the University of Missouri in 2011 with aspirations to volunteer overseas before going to graduate school. She started taking a beginning American Sign Language community course about 6 months ago and fell in love with ASL. Now, she’s heading to Southeast Asia in June to work with deaf children.
