Deaf and hard of hearing people live throughout the world, and many of them come to the United States in search of education, employment, and/or a better life. Demir Bekiri, this month’s #NADhandwave recipient, is one of those remarkable deaf individuals who came into the United States and not only found everything he was looking for, but also devoted his life to sharing the American Dream with so many others who came after him.
In this month's AHA segment, NAD CEO Howard A. Rosenblum shares one of the things people have been talking about on Facebook, the appropriate use of ASL for the "National Association of the Deaf, NAD". If you're reading from your mobile, watch the video from here.
The NAD wishes to recognize Cathy Corrado as this month’s #NADhandwave recipient for her time and energy investing in the deaf and hard of hearing youth. Thanks to her efforts, the annual “Biztown” event which is part of the Junior Achievement program, has helped give many local deaf and hard of hearing students an opportunity to learn about business, economics, finances and life-skills.

To nominate someone who deserves a #NADHandwave, one must submit a brief explanation of how a certain person embodies the NAD’s spirit. For some people who are deserving of this recognition, a simple 200-word explanation is not enough to capture everything that the person has done for our community! Lori Wakat is one of those people who have given so much and deserves a #NADHandwave from our community.
