Kiss-Fist (love-it) my deaf community!

I have an unconditional love for the Deaf community. The culture, the language and the triumphs and successes that the community has experienced. I could not create this blog without dedicating a page to honor the very community that has made me who I am and given me the opportunities that I have.
My mother was deaf and my father is hard of hearing and my two brothers are deaf and because of my family I have a language that always opens doors for me. From my childhood and adult life I have an appreciation for people with disabilities (I do not see deafness as a disability). I believe in advocating for the rights of deaf individuals and encouraging the community to self-advocate. I love when I see growth in the community, values and traditions passed through generations and strong sense of pride in being Deaf.

I hope that you will find topics of interest on my blog. If you have any questions or concerns please fill out my contact form.

Take care,

D.Holliness
