Hello! My name is Kirstie Stage. I am a deaf researcher who is passionate about Deaf history and Disability history. I enjoy finding stories in the archives and talking to people about their lived experiences. These perspectives are also important in activism, policy-making and decision-making. Having grown up in hearing environments, and now exploring my Deaf identity as an adult, I love the depth and breadth of our individual and shared experiences, talents and identities. Collaboration is important to me, and I am excited to work with others to make a positive impact with the campaign.
