Deaf-Blind College Grad

A 27-year-old deaf-blind student just earned her associate degree in general studies at Cuesta College in Southern California. It took Corrina Veesart nine years to finish. She participated in graduation exercises yesterday. Veesart used interpreters in her classes, often only taking one class each semester. She can read Braille as well as large one-inch print up close.

To mark this week's international Deafblind Awareness Week, the UK deafblind charity Sense has created a new portal called the Sensehub at www.sensehub.org.uk. It will allow people to enter and share a world of sensory experiences online, via Twitter, YouTube, flickr, etc.
Check it out!
