Excerpts;

Danny Gong, the Osaka-based founder of DeafJapan, is the son of deaf parents, the New York native first qualified as a nationally licensed sign language interpreter in American sign language.

He has become a bilingual ambassador, providing opportunities for hearing-impaired people in Japan to enjoy activities in English while also linking them up with the global community.
