Hi! My name is Te’aira Tucker and I am a new blogger for Gallaudet University.  

Let me start off by giving you some background information about me. I am from a small town in Alabama. I am hard of hearing. I am a very mellow person. I love to laugh and smile as most of the people here at Gallaudet. I am thinking about double majoring in Deaf Education and social work. 

I am going to try and keep you all posted about my life here at Gallaudet.

Let’s start off with an event that happened two weeks ago.

My classmates and I met Myron Uhlberg. He was there to talk about his book and his experience with his deaf parents. Mr. Uhlberg is the author of ” Hands of My Father: A Hearing Boy, His Deaf Parents, and the language of Love”. His book is amazing! I laughed and cried when I read it. So when I got to meet Mr. Uhlberg in person, it was a great honor. He is such a nice person. I am glad I got the chance to meet him.

That was an event I will never forget.

Moving on to something else that is current. Today I went to Gallaudet University’s women basketball scrimmage game. I watched the women play and supported my friends.

They were great! Here is some pictures from the event.

It was a great game and I am glad I went to support our team. I can’t wait til the next game.

I am hoping I will post more events of what is happening at Gallaudet.  Gallaudet is such an amazing school. There is always new events happening here.   I can’t wait to see what is next here at Gallaudet.
