A book, is a solid record of words. It freezes the plots, expressions and emotions, and blocks them from escaping easily.
The deaf and people hard of hearing have been living with us. They want others to know about their stories, just like other social minorities.
If you were fortunate enough to learn sign language and make friends with them, they would definitely come next to you, and tell you all about their lives…
It is alright that people with normal hearing do not understand sign language, because we decide to make amplifiers, to amplify our voices and let the world hears us.
Come and ride on our shoulders to look at this world.
Denise Chan Yi-hin worked in Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies in a local university. Despite her normal hearing, she has learnt sign language and has been fighting for equal opportunities for the deaf. She is still working hard for being a good “companion”. She is also the one of the interviewers.
Lu Chun-yi is a deaf graduated from Chun Tok School, and obtained an Associate of Arts (AA) Degree in New Media from the Academy of Art University. Working currently for Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as a junior research assistant, she is now joining the Asia Pacific Sign Linguistics Research and Training Program.
Sham Pak-ki is a deaf graduated from Chun Tok School, and studied in the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Sha Tin) majoring graphic and media designs. He then joined Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as designer and researcher. He had lived in Vancouver, Canada, and experienced the respects given to the deaf from the local community. Upon arrival in Hong Kong, he has been advocating right of the deaf and equal opportunities.
