NTID Presenter Series:
Traveling the World as a Deaf Latina
Stacey Marlene will share her experiences of traveling around the world as a Deaf Latina. She'll share how her cultural identity shaped her travel and how her self-perception changed, such as feeling like she was not Latina enough and finding a new perspective of what it means to be a Latina after returning to the motherland, Mexico.
Stacey, who was born and raised in Los Angeles as a first-generation Mexican-American, is a Deaf content creator and travel blogger behind Deafinitely Wanderlust. She loves traveling around the world while tackling challenges that are created by society, and because, pues (well), she lives by her motto: sólomente tienes una vida (you only have one life). Through her travels and social media content, she aims to spread awareness and challenge people's perspectives about deaf travel & deaf communities through digital storytelling and sharing both her own experiences and the experiences of others.
