I’m writing a short book with the above title. I’m passionate about it as some of it draws from my own personal experiences as a deaf person growing up. It also tackles issues on racism and mental health.
I won’t spoil it, of course, but I feel there’s a need for this book as I wished I had something like this that I could relate to. Especially when I felt like I was the only deaf person in the world.
I was the only deaf person in my family and I didn’t have any D/deaf friends growing up. I have only recently obtained my deaf identity in the last five years or so. I’m in my twenties. That’s a LONG time to feel isolated in the world…
I better dash and write some more while I can! Other commitments have to take priority, which is why it will take a while to complete the book. But it’s coming, don’t you worry!
