deaf – That is OK, when talking about people with hearing loss, in general.

Hard-of-Hearing – Some of us can use the telephone, and hear quite a bit. We, hard-of-hearing people live in both the hearing world and Deaf world – we have an identity of our own.

Deaf – YES! The big D distinguishes us as a group of people with our own unique language and culture. We have our own identity, and we would like to be respected as such. Many people all over the world call themselves Deaf.


Deaf-And-Dumb – We may not be able to hear, but it does not mean we are stupid or retarded.

Deaf-Mute – Some of us voice, and voice well. But we decide when and with whom we want to voice. Because we cannot hear how loud or soft or how high or low our voices are, sometmes we are ridiculed and we feel terrible. Would you want to be laughed at? Neither do we.

Pipi – Tagalog version of mute. Not true. Maaring magsalita ang marami sa amin kung nais namin.

Hearing-Impaired – Why focus on the negative? This term was popular in the 70s and 80s, but now is used mostly by doctors, audiologists and other people who are mainly intersted in our ears “not working.”


“I love Adobe Photoshop and Flash”

Being student on this subject, its really hard to me follows the instruction given to us every time we had a project that need to submit. Since drawing is my passion, I really enjoyed such a thing like this. Even though sometimes takes me time to understand, it is not become a hindrance not to make and create drawing that’s why I really love Photoshop and Flash because there’s a guide on it that makes me easy to make a drawing.

Since high school, I have been waiting to enter college. I always wanted to be a college student; a serious student who would decide what to be in his life. It was a day full of new experiences.

My first day in college really makes me excited but nervous. I saw some students talking, laughing while others are chatting. As a special students with a hearing impaired like me, I really don’t know how to introduce myself to them since they are hearing and can communicate well. With my effort to become one of them I tried a lot in a way that they could understand me. As the days passed, I become comfortable because my classmates as well as my professor helped me a lot and they are really understanding, approachable and patient to me.

 I’m really thankful to all my professors for giving me a chance to become their students.. For being good example to me, I really appreciated them a lot.
