Christy Smith, a contestant who is deaf and appeared in Survivor: Amazon, is working with David Justice, sign language interpreter and job coach in Discovering Deaf Worlds. They plan to travel to different countries to meet with Deaf storytellers, community leaders, organizations, and youth from New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China, Thailand, India, Nepal, Kenya.
“While traveling around the world, Dave and Christy intend to visit many Deaf schools and organizations. Their goal is to gain a better understanding of a variety of cultures worldwide, and share the experiences they bring from the United States. They will be capturing traditional stories of native Deaf signers, interviewing Deaf leaders on current issues in their communities, living the adventures each country has to offer, and creating possibilities along the way.” [Thank you, Paula]
