Am I qualified?

This is said at a community meeting with political representatives doing the lectures. Everyone talking is a well educated professional, wearing a suit and tie. This is an all too common occurrence. Upon arrival the terp realizes they ...

I have traveled alone in the US before, and I have traveled outside of the US with family, but when I ran into the opportunity to do some traveling alone, I had serious doubts about my abilities as a Deaf person to navigate in a country that speaks a langua...

MOTIVATIONI find that motivating myself is one of the...
Dana's Globe Trotting MOTIVATIONI find that motivating myself is one of the hardest things for me to do. It is so easy for me to tell someone else to do something.

The best way I find I can motivate myself...

We are here in Russia at last!!
Dana's Globe Trotting As is custom with me I slept very little the night before we departed. I am not sure if this is due to the excitement of the upcoming adventure or because I seem to fail to get everything together until moments before we must leave for the airport. Regardless of my reasoning this has become somewhat of a tradition on my part. I guess my ability to sleep on airplanes c...

We hitched a ride with one of his friends and headed down the coast to a beautiful little seaside village where a couple lived.We spent the evening chatting and getting to know each other. Carlo is fluent in ASL so until this point I had not been exposed...
