I was born and raised in Minnesota. I graduated from MSAD and am Deaf. In my free time, I enjoy my hobbies and raise my two deaf children. I play sports such as softball basketball, and recreational volleyball. Summer is my favorite season!  Working for a company that has a mission to support the deaf community is very important to me!

While DCSC and KIS do share booth; we also have a booth next to us that is being run by the Medical Team from MDH. They will provide COVID-19 vaccine and two ASL interpreters will be there too!

What would DCSC/KIS's booth look like? KIS will have informative resources about interpreting and DCSC will also share informative resources along with free stuff to hand out
such as COVID test kits, KN95 masks, and hand sanitizers

We will also have a big spin the wheel for YOU to win awesome freebies! You wouldn't want to miss this out! We have cool items this year!

Also, I will be doing COVID-19 trivia game show at DN!
It will be at 12:30-1pm. Lasting for only 30 minutes long! Be sure to grab your opportunity to join me for this FUN game!
It could be your time to learn something new or show off your knowledge!

I want to add one more announcement for this Sunday
