Just how far could you get in your chosen field of studies if you were deaf? Imagine you live in a silent world, having never hearing a sound, but you have a fascination with planes and you want to fly.
Sign-Up! Sign Language and Deaf Culture Awareness Club would like to invite you to meet Stephen J. Hopson, the first ever instrument rated Deaf pilot, on Tuesday, April 17th at 7:30pm in the Embry-Riddle Student Center.
This is a once in a life time opportunity to personally meet and hear the story of this special individual, who overcame life obstacles and became an inspiration to the Deaf and Aviation community. Mr. Hopson has succeeded in many careers, (Wall Street, best-selling author, pilot, and inspirational speaker). Can a deaf person fly an airplane? How would they be able to talk to the Air Traffic Control Tower? Would you feel comfortable and safe if you found out your pilot was Deaf?
His stories will inspire everyone, students and established career professionals alike, to go for what you want, have faith in yourself, and to succeed in what you set out to do. Come join us and be a part of this moving evening. This free event is open to the Embry-Riddle and Daytona beach community.
