Introducing myself - alicia castro (hoh)

#1
Hi all,

Thank you for reading my introduction. My name is Alicia Castro, I am HoH. At age 9, I was diagnosed with a bilateral reverse hearing loss. My previous boss is deaf and he tried to teach me sign language. I did not learn much. I know the basic and will try to learn more during my free time. A little bit about myself, I have no children and never been married. I work as an Human Resources Assistant at NASA - I never thought this would happen to me especially having a disability.

Currently I am blogging about my hearing loss journey. Please feel free to visit my blog at www.embracehearingloss.com

I am very careful when I blog, my goal is to help others. I am looking for guest bloggers who are deaf and HoH. Anyone is welcome to comment, message, and be added as a guest blogger at my website.

I will provide more resources during my free time. I know a lot about the hiring process in federal jobs. I know how to write excellent resumes- that's how I got hired at NASA.

If you need any help, feel free to message me using my e-mail list in my blog (look at the bottom). I will help you for free. All I am asking is for you to give me an opportunity to learn more about your life, culture, and what else can be done to assist with your needs. Little by little, I try to learn new skills to perfect my social media links, coding, html. There's a lot of free resources out there. I want to help as many as I can.

The skills I offer you are listed below:
-LinkedIn
-FB Page
-Coding
-WordPress

-Couponing Tips
-Felting

-Resumes (I will revise it for you for free)
-Cover Letters (I will revise it for you for free)

Anything else I can help you with, please message me.

As soon as I pay off my student debt, I will start saving up money and create scholarships for hearing loss and deaf individuals by next year.

I enjoyed reading about your boss Robert . You write very eloquently. Would you be interested in a hearing parents prospective on raising a deaf child to write a post for your blog? What it's like to to learn ASL and embrace your child for who they are ? If not I totally won't be offended:)

You sound cool! I went Deaf as an adult, know ASL, my husband is Deaf from birth. I know a LOT about Equal Employment Opportunity from helping other Deaf who were discriminated against at their jobs and have read almost every page of the EEOC website. I also am an ADA eligibility specialist for public transportation.

Your offer to revise resumes and cover letters is very nice! I always have to edit the cover letters for my husband when he applied to jobs because his English isn't perfect. =) Welcome.

Thank you for your kind words :) Glad to hear you're helping your husband. By supporting each other, we can do anything.
