Hear Me Out! [CC] is a place where hearing people can learn how to connect and engage with deaf people better, plus work together to bridge the gap between the hearing and deaf worlds.
Let’s get started below.
Hear Me Out! [CC] is a place to celebrate the individual identities by sharing stories about other deaf and my own personal journey.
This site also exists to raise deaf awareness, help educate the hearing world about being more deaf aware, as well as helping those who are deaf to connect with the individual stories.
– Mark Twain
My own personal journey is a complicated one. Even though I have been deaf/hard of hearing since birth, I still grew up in the mainstream hearing world and barely got involved with the d/Deaf community.
As an “inbetweener”, where I have one foot in the hearing and one foot in the deaf world, it’s not that easy to create an identity for yourself. But it also means that I have a unique position and understanding of both worlds.
