#OurDeafCommunity is full of hidden gems and we want to bring you stories of different people raring to shine in this world. ✨
To kick off our Signers of #OurDeafCommunity campaign, watch Zavier Sabio share a mantra from his mom that led him to carve an uncharted path in order to pursue his passion.
This is just a snippet of his story. The full version will be released in the coming months. Keep an eye out! 👀

[TRANSCRIPT: “It’s an ongoing battle. It is what it is. My mom always said, “It is what it is. Just go with it. Put your boots on and fight.” Because if you really want something, you will fight hard for it. This is exactly how I feel as a Black person in America and as a Black Deaf person in fashion and in the world.”]
[VD: Zavier Sabio, a Black man, is wearing a white short-sleeved shirt. He has a beard. A golden bracelet can be seen on his left wrist. The backdrop shows a dull brick wall.]
