You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great

In my college years, I got involved with a public speaking club and since then, I have found myself competing and speaking on numerous international stages. These exhilarating experiences helped me find my ‘Why?’ and inspired me to share my stories with others. When I asked my friends and colleagues to describe me in 3 words, they said: an authentic, energetic and inspiring storyteller. Very kind of them. But in fact, these are precisely the attributes I bring to my keynote speeches to talk about topics that affect every one of us. And I love what I do.

Alexander Graham Bell: Be A Pioneer

By host - clark.jones
Inventor, educator, linguist and scientist: Alexander Graham Bell was a man of many hats. Yet his greatest role of all was being a devoted son to a mother who couldn't speak. His love for her was the catalyst behind one of the world's greatest inventions.

He stole the telephone and beat the real inventor to the patent office! Nice.

It was proven in a US court in 2002 that he did not invent the phone but stole the idea from an Italian scientist. Thomas Edison made it work for the masses. He did, however, invent the audiogram to measure hearing, the compression vest that saved his son's life, and compression medical devices we use in hospitals to prevent blood clots.

He was a horrible man who destroyed deaf culture and schools for the deaf all on his own. He tried to ban deaf people from marrying each other and denied his own wife access to ASL. He brought in the Dark Ages of deaf education that lasted for over 100 years.

The deaf community does not welcome AG Bell over the idea of suppressing sign languages from day 1 to present.

I don’t like Bell because he wants deaf people to become oral and speak. Bell is against sign language (ASL) and I strong believe that ASL is a beautiful language and everyone should use ASL to communicate.
