Sense of Belonging in
the Deaf World
Although I’ve shared a different video about finding my Deaf identity through fitness, traveling also helped me to find my Deaf identity.
I believe that exploring one’s own identify can be a lifelong process. Sometimes other things in your life also makes you explore your identity further.
Growing up, I never felt I belong in the Deaf community, and I didn’t accept myself as a Deaf person. While solo traveling to Japan, I felt lonely as I tried to fit in Hearing world.
I also challenged myself to solo travel again in Thailand and expected that I may still feel lonely and unhappy with myself. However, bumping into a group of Deaf people in Thailand on the day I arrived in Bangkok, that day changed everything.
