And just because society has built stereotypes on our insecurities, that does not mean they should inhibit us from doing the things we want to do. This project was built from the idea that everyone has his or her insecurities, and instead of hiding behind them, we should embrace them and seek to fulfill our bucket list dreams.

You know, that cliche actions speak louder than words thing?! For me, I’ve always wanted to travel the world, and my hearing loss is something I’ve failed to embrace, so I’m combining the two. Over the next year, I’ll be gallivanting around the world as part of a remote work program and pushing myself to learn more about the deaf culture in my own country and in the countries that I visit. Through this self-recognition and research, my hope is to inspire others to live out their full potential, create more awareness around the deaf and hard of hearing community, and learn a few travel tips!

I’d love for you to join me in this journey. I want to hear from you about embracing the unknown and fulfilling your desires! How can we help each other? Contact me, and let’s make some magic happen!

*UPDATE: As a result of this project, I've been asked to write for HearingLikeMe.Com as well as Esteem Hearing, so for additional articles from me, check them out :)
