Personal Narrative: Helping Deaf Culture

Decent Essays
Mindset is a very interesting concept, what if someone had the ability to change that for one another? If I had the ability to give someone a chance at a new life changing factor, I would definitely start by introducing deaf people into the hearing world. I could only imagine how much of a change that would be by giving deaf people a chance to hear for the first time. There are many ways to change a stuck mindset if someone just tried something new once in a while.
People do not have a choice whether they are can hear or not which is why I am so interested in helping the deaf culture. I have taken two sign language courses and just in that short period of time it has impacted my life, by taking the course I got to see and feel how deaf people

I think everyone should have a positive and a happy life, sometimes people are stuck in a mindset that is hard for them to see things differently. Helping out with the deaf culture would be a change in my life and make it into the better to possibly get me out of my mindset. Deaf people deserve to get the chance to hear and who knows maybe the procedure to help their hearing may fail but it is the fact that they tried. Everyone in life should get a chance to change something whether it may fail or succeed.
I feel as if this would impact my life in so many ways and it would teach me a lot of life lessons along the way. This would impact my life by showing me different point of views on how to see life differently. I think life has a lot to offer and a lot of the times people do not catch the offers. I believe that the story a person could have when achieving their goal is being told, there would not be a greater feeling of success than that. It would inspire many others in this world to pursue their dreams and share the greatness to one

A hope mindset is when a person has a mind full of hope, they see failure but with success overpowering it. It also means to not give up and always set higher goals to accomplish. Life is not about giving up easy when times get hard or when it feels as if one can no longer take it. People should always have some support and positive attitudes behind every decision they take. Yes, sometimes people have to battle things on their own, but it is for a reason and will most likely make you stronger. Moral of most stories, when life gets tough they fight it and when life is great they thank

    Having confidence help us to live the life without conflict. If we are positive and avoid the negative attitude from our mind, we feel ourselves more confidence than while thinking negatively. The way of avoiding the negative attitude is thinking about our strength and our capacity that we can do, our accomplishment and our success story that we have achieved so far. We have to give the value for our hard work and have to learn to respect ourselves. Procrastination is an enemy of the positive thinking, rather just keeping in mind let’s practice in our real life talking with the people about positive thinking and its impact on everyday life.…

    There are many challenges that I would face when try to assist an individual that is deaf in communicating within the dominant culture. We live in a society where being deaf is seeing as a weakness or defect. We either pity them for not being able to hear or we celebrate that they are able to survive within our dominant culture. One of the challenges that I would face would be changing the way society sees deaf people and allowing them to communicate in their own way without establishing misconceptions. As an anthropologist I would create methods that would empower deaf people to communicate freely.…

    To be short, I personally started off by having a fixed mindset but when I was under pressure I changed into a growth mindset because of the pressure but also the result that showed me that effort does lead to your own success. Everyone has the same amount of chances in life but it only comes to you if you reach out for it and put enough effort which means that if you are dedicated and willing to not give up. This lesson is important because if I haven’t learnt from my mistakes or past I might have still be a stubborn person who would not try to do anything new and not believe in hope. This lesson means a lot to my continuing journey since it has been a major experience that made me believe in myself and also remind me that I can be the change that I want to see in the world. In the hope that, as students we have to have a growth mindset but also as whom who has to teach someone to a totally new thing to them, in Professor Dwecks words she says “you have to praise the process within a growth mindset” Of course by now you may think that it is great to have a growth mindset but forcing one another to obtain it doesn’t work since it is like trying to help someone make a puzzle.…

    I could see why some Deaf/deaf people have a problem with people using SEE instead of ASL. ASL was created so they could communicate with each other while SEE is just a visual form of english. After doing some more research it said that some deaf children should be taught sign exact english. It said that it could expand the child’s vocabulary and help them getter a better understanding of the english culture/their communication style. In some ways I agree with this because it definitely would help their understanding towards english, but then they don’t know about their own culture.…

    However, there has been times I have thought bad stuff about myself. I have always known my self-confidence can be better. I have made a lot of progress in other parts and in my life so this can definitely be my next goal. This agreement will definitely help me view myself differently, I have to be able to hear people’s opinions and comments about me either good or bad and not let them affect me. I think not letting good comments affect me will be hard though, because I really like being praised.…

Don’t always take up life as a game if winning makes us move on and losing means giving up, then our lives are pointless; life doesn’t really work out that way, when we lose we should get back up and learn from the mistakes and move on to better choices in life.
