Before reading your piece on deaf history, I didn’t know there were so many important/famous deaf people. Marlee Matlin is the only deaf person that I could remember and admire. She has so much courage to be out in the spotlight. I admire her very much.

I see her often on different shows, using her voice to speak (softly because she is deaf) and with her interpreter at other times. She is very easily understood and she gives encouragement to other deaf people.

I also admire Marlee for taking the challenge of pursuing her future and paving the way for other deaf people to know that they can do anything that their heart desires.

Marlee has shown that not only can you live out your dream, but you can also be successful at it. Marlee has proven that anyone can get out there in that crazy world and do what they want. Each and every individual can get out in the world, pursue their dreams, be happy, and be successful.

Before seeing Marlee, I wouldn’t have thought that possible. I believe that our future will certainly be changed, because a few people dared to take the challenge and make a difference, like Marlee Matlin.
