Jessica Flores: Being Deaf is a Laughing Matter



Jessica Flores is on a mission: to make others laugh while she’s in the middle of her own journey of discovering her deaf self.  In a video that went viral on Now This, Breaking Deaf Taboos, Jessica shared some insight that started her on the path to becoming more comfortable being deaf:

So for a long time, I always felt really alone and isolated. I’m not gonna get into my whole life journey, but it was hard. And it was not an easy road to go down. It took me years to realize that I was not the only deaf person facing all these communication barriers and challenges every day. I seriously figured all this out like three years ago. Once I realized this, I wanted to do something about it.

Karen Putz and Jessica share a few laughs as Jessica tells more of the story of her journey:

  1. I am so excited to find this blog after being the only “hard of hearing” person for so long. I am a retired special education teacher that continues to work with children with a wide range of learning exceptionalities. I even taught English in China. I would love to connect with hard of hearing equestrians who are struggling to hear in the riding arena, and hear how deaf and hard of hearing people can adapt to being in barns, learning to ride, and competing.
