    Growing up I didn’t know a lot about the deaf world. I just thought that deaf people were people living with a disability, like blind people. In the book A Lens on Deaf Identities by Irene W. Leigh, she makes a bold statement saying: To naïve observers, deaf people are a little like the Bork in the Star Trek films. Deaf people think alike, behave alike, and have the same life experience. You meet one deaf person, you’ve meet them all. This antiquates, one-size-fits-all approach persist even in this

    in the importance of the deaf culture. Typically, the deaf community would include people who share the same language, regardless of their races, religions, socio-economic status. With that in mind, deaf people culturally hold the perception that deafness is a social phenomenon rather than a type of disability.
