The entire month of September is National Deaf Awareness Month. Here at Urban Girl Magazine we are bringing awareness to the month by acknowledging it and we will also get some insight from someone from within the deaf community. 1 in 20 Americans are deaf or hard of hearing. Although it is a common disability many are still unaware of how to communicate with the deaf community.
In honor of this month we will have an Urban Girls who is hearing impaired explain more about this topic. She’ll explain what life looks like through her experience and as a deaf makeup artist. She’ll walk us through a makeup tutorial as well. Stay tuned to the Urban Girl Magazine snap chat account for the National Deaf Awareness week takeover starting tomorrow.
