PHOTOS: American Deaf Author Awards Books to Victoria
I mentioned a couple of months ago that Victoria was selected by Dr. Lissa Ramirez-Stapleton to receive 25 copies of their book about the Black Deaf Community!
Victoria sent a thank you video to Lissa when she was selected. If you haven't seen it on our channel yet, take a moment to watch it. Victoria is simply beaming with enthusiasm!
And today, I received these photos from Victoria. Through an involved (and at times, arduous) journey, they have finally ARRIVED in Ghana and are in the hands of Victoria's students!
Emmanuel (Victoria's mentor) wrote that, "the students are so excited to have gotten extra work books from one of their own Deaf writer. These expressions can be seen... They promised to put the books to good use. They expressed they sincere appreciation to you all."
I am so excited for Victoria. What a beautiful Deaf world exchange. :)
And thank you, Dr. Lissa, for shipping these books to Victoria!
