Hello, Im Joel Garcia and I'm a Gallaudet University student. Here we are at the SLCC building its nice and luxurious. Now, I would like to explain about The Deaf Box. Whats that? In a box, you have great benefits, resources, leadership, talent, and many other great things. However, remember to acknowledge that outside the box there are hearing people who look at us and wonder whats up with that? What are we doing in the box? All you need to do is bring that outside and expose, teach, and help them. The hearing people will learn something. All you the deaf people need to do is just expose to them that we have leadership within deaf people, have resources, and excellent talent all that in our community. The hearing people will be intrigued and want to work with us. That collaboration is good and very important. Now you must always keep in mind that in the deaf box, we hold dear so much values, language, and diversity yes that is fine. But you must think outside the box. You can bring what you have outside the box in order to expose and help the world so to create more benefit for us all. So, its really important for you to think outside the box. Have a good day!
