Heather Hughes

  • Discovering Deaf community, at age 17, was the best thing that happened to her socially, emotionally and professionally.
  • As a mother, she immersed in language acquisition of young children, wanting her son to be able to communicate bilingually.
  • Her son (CODA) uses both ASL and English to communicate the most abstract and complex thoughts. Hard work, but worth it!
  • As Executive Director of the Deaf Action Center, she mentors other d/Deaf individuals to find their sense of self-worth & talents.
