Deaf student in the US helps hearing impaired refugees
October 9, 2017
Sign language is a language used by the deaf community to communicate with each other. Sign language differs from country to country because every region or country uses its own sign language.
Pamela Wright, a linguistics graduate student in the United States is also hearing impaired. She uses American Sign Language, ASL, and a translator to communicate with the hearing people.
She has set up a non-profit organisation to help out deaf people from different countries who come to live permanently in the United States.
The initiative is helping many deaf people gain confidence and adjust to a new country.
