A young Deaf lady came to Deaf Zimbabwe Trust on Tuesday. She told me that she wanted to write O levels. The only O level she had written was Art and she had passed. She had been moved to write HEXCO. I asked her why she had not written O level and she started crying. She said she had been told that Deaf people do not pass and so it was a waste of time to write O level. She cried for a while as she remembered the hurt she had felt when she was told she could not write O level. she wanted to write her O levels and go to college. No one asked what she wanted to do in her life, no one asked her what her dreams were and a choice was made by someone in authority that would affect the rest of her life and her children’s life.
