Guam - The island's deaf community embraced Deaf Nation CEO Joel Barish on Thursday evening. Deaf Nation, which was founded in 2003, is the international leader in video content, news coverage, social networking and special events for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
"We really want to show deaf people stories and we interview deaf people in countries all around the world," said Barish. "And it's just been a great experience and here tonight we have a presentation of people around the world we have interviewed different local deaf families. They've been able to share experiences, which has been great to show that deaf people can do everything but hear."
Guam is Barish's last stop of his World Traveler Tour, which included Sweden, India, Bhutan, Bali, and the Philippines. Barish hopes Guam's government will work harder to provide equal access for the deaf.
