Walked out the door…met group called “Funny Deaf”

After lunch at the cafe below my apartment, I walked out to see deaf people chatting by our swimming pool. I walked up and introduced myself and before I knew it, they had welcomed me into the nearest cafe and started telling me about their project, Funny Deaf.

Large group of deaf signing "F" and "D" together in a sign for "Funny Deaf".

“Funny Deaf” is a filming project where this group of friends is trying to show hearing people in Vietnam that Deaf are happy and capable. They said so many times Deaf are portrayed as unhappy or limited in film and they want to change that. Isn’t that awesome!?!

Check out their Facebook Group here >>

I just couldn’t believe that they were right there in my apartment complex and that one of the group actually is my neighbor. Coincidence? I think not! 🙂

Feeling so grateful to be where I am!
