What Are Marketing Mondays class notes about?
These notes outline how I started my company (without having any money to start with)!
When my mom found out I was Deaf, they asked her about noticing that I couldn't hear her. She said I have three kids none of them listen to me!
This concept of falling through the cracks in support systems has applied to many aspects of my life: healthcare, education, relationships, quality of living, and working conditions.
The idea behind doing business as Deaf Child comes from Deaf Gain and growth. It started out as a way to speak up for people who don't have the resources to speak up for themselves.
Obviously there's the Hard of Hearing aspect. I could keep it light and say that "child" is in the name because I look young or I want to approach problems with a childlike curiosity. But really it is because in some ways I feel like I had to grow up early for myself.
The name Deaf Child is a reminder to not just catch things when they fall between the cracks, but to actively nurture development for a flourishing environment.
