Hello Friends & Supporters
It all started when I was in my early teens. I told my mom that I wanted to go to South Africa in the middle of the US anti-Aparthied movement in which my father and I was apart of. In my high school years I tried to do a paper on what was going on in South Africa for people with disabilities/Deaf and remember this was in the mid 80's before computers. My paper turned out to be a half a page cause I couldn't find enough information on people with disabilities/Deaf in South Africa at that time.
