“Navigating Deafness on the Way to a Rhodes Scholarship” Rahel Kolb TEDx

My friend Sara Wegley posted this on her blog over at  Speak Up Librarian. This TEDx presentation by Rachel Kolb is one that should be shared everywhere.  Rachel challenges us to look beyond what we “can’t do”, and instead look to our abilities and see the possibilities that can be reached simply by doing things differently. I like how she reframes deafness…deafness isn’t so much of a disability as it is a communication barrier. This impressive 17 minute presentation is captioned.
