My World: ’I’m in-between’’ But really, what does that mean?

*Disclaimer: this blog is my personal viewpoint, please be mindful when reading* ‘Not deaf enough for the Deaf World & not hearing enough for the Hearing World’. When describing my life within this world I always tend to bring up my experiences of how I fit into different ‘worlds’. In my eyes, two worlds exist.Continue reading “My World: ’I’m in-between’’ But really, what does that mean?”
