“As a deaf entrepreneur, I’ve always shied away from letting my deafness identify me. I used to oppress that side of me because I saw it as a burden for anyone who had to ‘deal’ with me. Tide Risers helped me to examine my values and identity, and start embracing my unique position straddling the line between the deaf and hearing worlds.”
