    I am interesting on deaf issues to learn more to help me to improve my background.

  • I am wondering why you did not interpret the entire interview in sign language, that way the entire Deaf community could have the opportunity to be inspired by this young man.

    A great story I would have loved to share with my grown deaf son. But since there is no captioning….:(. Really disappointed! A Missed opportunity to share with other deaf who may need encouraging.

    Too bad there wasn’t any captions…. Missed opportunity for Deaf viewers… The editing could have been better too when they showed with the interpreter… Disappointed….
