Following Heather Whitestone’s winning of Miss America, she joined several organizations and became a spokeswoman for a few of them to promote deaf awareness (Deaf Is… Culture). The National Council on Disability and the Helen Keller Foundation for Research and Education are two of the few organizations she has served on (Very Well). Moreover, Whitestone started her own program, STARS, an acronym for, Success Through Action and Realization of your DreamS (Premiere Speakers Bureau). Within the program, there are five points that she believes are necessary for achieving success. The five points are, having an encouraging attitude, believing in one’s dreams, be willingly to work diligently, facing one’s obstacles and to build a support team (Premiere Speakers Bureau).
Touch-lip reading, Braille, speech, typing, and finger spelling were just some of the methods she had learned. In 1903 she published her first autobiography “Story of My Life” with the help of Anne Sullivan and John Macy, Anne’s soon to be husband. Many people were inspired by her story, Helen once said “Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows”. Helen graduated from Radcliffe College at the age of 24 in 1904. She lived with Anne and John after they got married and she resumed to learn from her mentor.
They’re in front of the station so they pull in and park right in front of the door and they wait for the officer to pull up. They can see his cruiser park right next to theirs so they all get out and walk along with the officer into the station. Soon as they walk in a group of parents run to them and start screaming “WHERES MY SON- MY DAUGHTER IS SHE OK-” and etc. The officer tries to calm them all down when a grown man runs up to Dante’s dad punches him knocking him to the ground and mounts him, yelling ”YOU SON OF A BITCH IF MY SON IS HURT
They solemnly prayed for the injured truck driver as the paramedics placed him in the Ambulance and then drive away. Sheriff Johnstone drove over, as they were sluggishly moving towards the pickup, and motioned for them to get in the patrol car. Wearily they slide into the back seat, when Estelle Louise shut the door the Sheriff says, “The driver of the truck, Mr. Dents was able to get out of the truck, before the fire started and thanks to heaven he was not seriously injured. We had a chat before the paramedics took him away and he told me he was in a dang hurry to get home and out of the rain. He admits he was speeding and lost control of his truck.
It is my altruism that will define who I become. Throughout my high school career, I have invested myself in the Deaf community. In my career past high school and college I will still be there and in the hearing community. I started a program to teach others American Sign Language. A girl came in and I started talking with her, she had an ASL background and knew enough signs to make conversation.
Anne Sullivan and Odysseus’s journey stages were very similar. For example, they both experienced a call to start their journey, their struggles in their road of trials, and after they both luckily found their crisis salvation which lead them both transformed into new people. These examples are just a few of the many ways Odysseus and Anne Sullivan relate in their life events. Anne Sullivan and Odysseus both found their call and were unaware of what was going to happen during the time they were there.“Perkins director Michael Anagnos wrote to Sullivan about a job opportunity as governess for a deaf-mute, and blind young woman named Helen Keller”(Sisson). Also Odysseus was unaware as to what was going to happened when he left to fight in the
This is because they’ve been together over the twenty years. They’ve often use the same kind English to each other. It had become their language of intimacy. Amy shows her mother’s grammar by quoting a conversation of her mother, which is talking about her past. It is full of grammatical mistakes and it’s quite difficult to understand.
Then after these questions we ended up on US-31 patrolling for speeders, which is where Deputy Montgomery pulled over two other drivers. When pulling over the first, a woman in a grey Toyota, while originally pulling her over for going 15 miles over the speed limit, he noticed that had improperly displayed her license plate with it being just taped to the rear window of the car. Then after scanning her driver’s license, he noticed that she failed to also change her address as well. After looking over the violations, at first I thought she would receive at ticket with that many warnings, which to my surprise she only received three warnings. The next stop however, had me extremely nervous until we finally let the driver go.
Niparko operated Whitestone’s right ear. The operation took six weeks to recover but she was able to hear a clap. Then she started hear the voice of her husband and children’s.

My family let out a seemingly rehearsed sigh of relief when we saw Alma talking to a police officer. The other two officers appeared to be talking to the owner of the SUV. The owner of the SUV was a man in his thirties that was frightening in nature due to the fact that he was covered in tattoos that were given with a ballpoint pen in Cell 237 by a guy named El Diablo or Butch. Most grown men wouldn’t mess with this guy but, my seventy-year-old, gun carrying, bible beating, big haired grandma just stopped a seasoned criminal from stealing her five-year-old golf cart and a gallon and a half of
Her mother didn’t become deaf until she was 13 months old. She had spinal meningitis and because of this she went deaf. She was getting shots for the meningitis, but after the fifth they decided to stop the shots and after they stop the relapse was what caused the deafness. It was very hard for Doris Jean because she was already starting to say some words. After the second fever, she went deaf and wouldn’t talk for years and when she did start talking, no one understood her.
