The deaf can teach you to listen better
My name is Singyi. I appear in the video at 0:38.
I speak and read lips. I am deaf.
Hush, to me, is a blend of silence, inclusiveness and connection.
It has shown me another way that the deaf community can offer something to society: through silence.
Silence, which can be a barrier to a deaf person's integration into the society, can now be used as a common platform for both hearing and non-hearing to engage together.
The hearing face noisiness in their busy lives. The non-hearing face chaos in their lives too, even amid the silence.
At Hush, we give ourselves a moment of peace, learning to be aware of our feelings, being in touch with ourselves and finally, finding acceptance.
Together, we can connect in a common language of silence, over a cup of tea.
Update: Hush crowdfunding has ended.
