Deaf Action Center was the beginning of my journey into the Deaf community. During college, I lost my hearing after contracting the measles and suffering auditory nerve damage. I came to DAC to learn how to cope with my hearing loss. After 15 years of living and working within the Deaf community, I regained my hearing. Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to give back to DAC in numerous ways to express my gratitude for their amazing support and services.
