MISS DEAF AMERICA: Hey there! 

Video freezes, Miss Deaf America's freeze frame slowly grows bigger as her title ID appears, "Chanel Gleicher, Miss Deaf America 2012-2014."

MISS DEAF AMERICA: It’s April already! This means the winter season is soon becoming into spring!  I am certainly looking forward for spring especially because I’ll get to wear flip-flops outside!

Video transitions with a push-slide Right-Left.

MISS DEAF AMERICA: I hope you all have been keeping track of my whereabouts and what I’ve been doing as Miss Deaf America. If you haven’t, fear not! I’ll recap my experiences from November to now.

MISS DEAF AMERICA: In the month of November, I went to Gallaudet University's Dance-A-Thon and danced all day!  Proceeds went to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts.  I also gave a performance at Mid-Atlantic Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival at Howard County, MD. I also made an appearance at Delta Zeta Sorority’s Mr. Killarney Rose Pageant by crowning the winner.

MISS DEAF AMERICA: For the month of December, I volunteered as a scorekeeper for nationwide middle school competition: Battle of the Books at Gallaudet University.  I also helped out Kendall Demonstration Elementary Parent Teacher Association Holiday Party.  I also traveled to Chicago, IL for the first time and made an appearance at a Signing Santa event at Woodfield Mall.

MISS DEAF AMERICA: In January, I came to National Association of the Deaf (NAD) headquarters at Silver Spring, MD to assist Allie Rice, NAD Youth Programs Coordinator for the day.  I also volunteered at the DC Central Kitchen in Washington, DC where I chopped a lot of vegetables prep food for the homeless. I also went to the PetMac adoption center in DC to assist the shop by cleaning and taking care of adorable cats who need a home. Finally, I did a photo shoot with Raj Singh, a fantastic photographer!   You’ll see photos soon for the Miss Deaf America Ambassador program.

MISS DEAF AMERICA: For February, I helped the LGBTQA community at Gallaudet University for their event by setting up for their Community NEEDS Assessment (CNA).

And finally, in March, I volunteered for the Academic Bowl at Gallaudet University as a moderator. Something really neat happened! The day before I volunteered on Monday, one of the questions used during the matches was, “Who is the current NAD Ambassador?” So, the next day when I volunteered, the teams who I moderated for asked me if I was the answer, Miss Deaf America! I thought that was pretty cool.
