NTID Presenter Series:
Stacey Marlene
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.

NTID Presenter Series:
Rachel Posner
Thinking Outside the Box

You can plan for it. Prepare for it. Live for it. Yet everything you set out to do can change in an instant. So what do you do when it does?

Think outside the box. Make your own circumstances happen professionally, emotionally, and personally.

Born, raised, and currently residing in Connecticut, RIT/NTID alumna Rachel Posner is the product of a hearing family where much was left to be desired. Always longing to belong, to understand, and to be understood for much of her upbringing, she felt stuck in the gray area where she was neither deaf enough nor hearing enough. Although she grew up oral, Rachel learned sign language at the age of 17 and her hands have not stopped moving since. She is proof that you can identify-learn when you’re good and ready!

Rachel’s experiences, trials, and tribulations have inspired her to pursue her life’s work as an advocate, operating her own consulting business, and working with school districts’ deaf and hard of hearing students in bridging the gray areas’ gaps, including sharing empowering message of inner peace, happiness, and awareness through her #DeafOutLoud platform. She also has tirelessly provided support and advice to parents in the United States regarding their children’s education and/or challenges in the public school systems. She is also a consultant for the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV) where she provides training for their staff members and partners on how to handle D/HH situations. Furthermore, she is also a professor of American Sign Language at Naugatuck Valley Community College.

Hi Columbia friends! I'm a Columbia alumni and I wanted to share a podcast that was released today that I'm on! I talk about my experience at Columbia and how it led me to my dream career of ASL Interpreting! Go check out this weeks episode (and the rest of the episodes because they are amazing). We also talk about what it's like to be married to a habits coach and what our health journey looks like together & individually. I also share insight on my career as an American Sign Language Interpreter, and even dive in to how I meal plan and cook homemade meals! Listen on ITunes or Spotify- just type in BulbCast! https://open.spotify.com/episode/7hdEarVzOVoO6UW5iJKGvt?si=lhieZ-L_QXGEE6HecBDzYA
Hi, from St. Louis, MO here! Wondering if perhaps I’ve overlooked anything about your 2020 Immersion Weekend. Have you all posted any information about this event yet?
Hi there! My name is Jane, and I am an undergraduate student down the road at the University of Chicago. I have taken two years of ASL courses, and this year I am in a Computer Science class about designing Inclusive Technology. Along with a group of other students, I am conducting a research study about how Deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) people might be assisted with extra-peripheral situational awareness technology. We intend to learn what degree of difficulty DHH people have in navigating hearing-centric situations; scenarios that might rely on audio cues whose source is behind the user, or ones which fail to give a visual warning alongside an aural one. We want to know what methods the DHH community currently employs to maneuver these situations, and what they might consider helpful. With this information in mind, we wish to gather preference data from the DHH community to guide the production of a technology intended to communicate to the user whenever these extra-peripheral sounds occur. This data includes information about form factor, communication modality, and what type of sounds require detection. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey! Participation in this research requires some degree of hearing loss, which we will ask you to report. Questions will generally be everyday scenarios and regarding personal preferences; no questions are expected to be intrusive or sensitive. Participation should take about 10-15 minutes. Thanks in advance!
