I can’t really choose one to identify with. There are so many people who made contributions to sign language becoming what it is today. People that were blessed with hearing took it upon themselves to learn ASL and want to communicate with deaf people. I find that amazing.
These people in deaf history came together and stood up for the rights of other people. I commend that. Many people outcast deaf people and that is not fair. They are human too. They don’t treat us, who are able to hear differently. They just wanted to be accepted, just as us. So I commend every person in deaf history who contributed to giving a voice to the deaf community.
