Using Twitter we asked the question, “If you could only give one piece of academic advice for D/HOH students, what would it be?” to the U.S. Deaf Soccer Women’s National Team and we were thrilled to read the response to our question today!

Tweet between @USDeaf_WNT and @NHDeafEd


Did you know that the Deaf Women’s National Team won the World Deaf Football championship in Italy in July of this year? The team is made up of 18 soccer players (opens new tab) who have a hearing loss of 55 decibels (or higher) loss in their best ear and have soccer experience. The team has previously won 3 Deaflympic Gold medals and 2 Deaf World Cup titles!

Thank you so much to the Team for responding to our tweet with such solid advice!
