Sharing your story is powerful.

The Minnesota Commission of the Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing is interviewing people who are deaf, deafblind, and hard of hearing. The interviews are posted online (both on social media and on the Commission’s website) as part of the #CanDoAnything campaign, which highlights community members in the workplace, from teachers to mortgage lenders, to electricians, to lawyers, a NASA employee, and more. Over 100 Minnesotans have already been interviewed and we'd love to see this campaign continue for a long time.

This is a platform to share personal stories about experienced barriers to communication access, countered by strategies for success, and lessons learned along the way. It is also great exposure for our youth and young people entering the workforce as well as hiring managers and businesses.

If you are willing to share your story, or know of someone who should be spotlighted, please send interest to Anne Sittner Anderson by email,


Nic Zapko for ASL talent.

Tamajai Grady for voiceover.

Keystone Interpreting Solutions for film production.
