So at the deaf dinner now and its not going quite as I planned but everyone is having fun and learning lots of new words!!!
I know I’ve been slacking I’m sorry but things are busy around my town in the summer. I just fell that some of you need an idea. My skills have been diminishing, why you ask, because the deaf community close to me is not very large and to find activities I have to drive hours away. So for all of those people who love signing and having difficulty make your own deaf dinner invite all your friends who are interested in learning, bring some books, flash cards help them out teach them something. Mine will be next week and if it goes well I will be adding photos!!! Cant wait to tell you about mine and hope to read about yours Ill tag it as -deaf dinner.
I fell like we need a challenge why not try interpreting your favorite poem so we can all hear some good poems?
Yesterday, Deaf rapper Signmark from Finland came to NYU to perform.
As a proud to-be-audiologist and 2nd level ASL student, I’m so so so proud of Signmark. But all that aside, his music is pretty catchy. My friends and I were being “those crazy people” in the back dancing and signing along.
I chatted with him for an interview, and he is so sweet yet extremely passionate and eager to share his music with everyone and anyone, deaf or hearing. I feel like artists like Marko Vuoriheimo ( Signmark) can really help bridge the gap between the hearing and deaf community all around he world.
