"All I can remember is being in the house alone when my parents locked me in when they went to work. I was 9 when I became deaf and it was really difficult. Eventually my parents searched for a deaf school and finally found one. When I finished school I really wanted to learn to sew but I had to walk 2 km into town everyday. Customers found I could not hear so they used a different tailor instead because they did not think I would understand them. At Neema Crafts it is great, because I am amongst other deaf people and I like working with a group with friends."
