Being hearing-impaired is a challenge in navigating a world where communication relies heavily on spoken words. 

In the Philippines, this challenge further creates a gap, as opportunities for the deaf are limited, particularly in education and employment. The struggle is intensified as only a few secondary learning institutions cater to their unique needs, with affordability and facility conditions hindering their pursuit of skills and knowledge. 

A personal advocacy 

Shery Funcion, the Principal of the Philippine School for the Deaf (PSD) in Pasay City, is no stranger to these challenges. 

Her dedication to the cause began with her college thesis, focusing on job opportunities for deaf learners. Since then, she has immersed herself in various organizations and volunteer activities, gaining firsthand insights into the limited opportunities available to deaf learners. She eventually became a SPED teacher, before taking on the principal role in PSD.
