Deaf West Wing Receptionist in the White House

Working in the West Wing, the same wing as the President living quarters, Leah Katz-Hernandez is the receptionist and welcomes all sorts of guests visiting the President. She gives those guests a positive Deaf experience, and from the experience, those guests learn more about Deaf people. In this video, Leah explains to Joel and viewers exactly how she got her position, what her position is, why she’s there, and more. She also gives us a small tour to some rooms in the White House. Bonus! (captioned)
