Let me share a short story with you, several years ago, I watched Oprah’s TV special, “The Legends,” where Oprah selected outstanding African American women that have done something significant for their communities. This inspired me to do something of a similar nature for the Deaf Women across America. After contemplating various names that will reflect what they have done, one day I saw the word pearl and knew that it was the perfect symbol. The pearl signifies several attributes such as being objects of beauty, unique, admirable, and most of all, rare. As a bonus, who doesn’t like to dress up all pretty in pearls!
