The Secret Superpowers of Being Deaf – Alex Alviar

Being deaf, it turns out, helps you see things others don’t.

Alex Alviar was born deaf and has lived much of his life with a cochlear implant. In this talk, he shares how he engages the world, how the world reacts, and the unexpected things his senses have shown him.

“It’s like having a secret superpower that no one’s really aware of and that I can’t fully control, sometimes for the worse but usually for the better.”

Prepare to never see deafness the same way again …
