How I Fight
I could tell you about myself, that I was born in Chicago to hearing parents and now have two children, but I don’t think that really tells you much about me. I’d rather tell you about how I fight. How I fight as a deaf black and Latina woman. This speech touches on a few principles of fighting, inspired by Thanh Nich Hahn’s How To Fight book: Show Up. Grieve. Share. Celebrate.
One of the most oft asked questions I get asked is “How did you do it?” I share my life story by sharing the big ideas of my journey: taking risks and making tons of mistakes, learning how to communicate, finding my community and…yes, coming from a place of love.
