The Best Job A Deaf Person Can Have

Dizziness and Hearing Loss Blog

I was watching the Today Show this morning and discovered Leah Kate-Hernandez.

leah_kate_hernandezBorn deaf 27 years ago to two deaf parents, Leah has become a pioneer for deaf and disabled people by working as the White House receptionist.

This is an awesome job for a deaf person because she has an interpreter answer phone calls for her, and assists her while greeting heads of state, and other duties which may provide to be a barrier for a deaf person.

Can someone please tell me why other businesses can’t provide interpreters for hard-of-hearing people at the average work place?

Anyone?

Below is the link to the video of her interview from the Today Show. I found it truly inspiring and can only hope that one day other employers follow this example:
