We have our 4th Deaf Dreamer: Amuge from Uganda!
Just this week I had the privilege to inform our newest Deaf Dreamer, Amuge, that she will be receiving our 2018 scholarship!
Amuge is an amazing, smart, strong Ugandan woman who will be a wonderful example to her Deaf community! She is determined to start a nonprofit that helps a common issue in her part of the world (that inhibits getting needed support and resources): assuming deafness is a intellectual disability or mental illness.
Here is a short video clip from her application that I think you might enjoy. (When we Skyped with each other a month ago, she had a HUGE smile on her face - she was just serious in the application. :) )
Thank you, my friends, for all you've done to help!
Have a wonderful day!
