Paul Smith spent almost 5 years volunteering in Kaduna State, Nigeria working at a school for deaf children. He used his own experience as a deaf person to break down barriers and inspire his students. Paul speaks to us about the impact of his experience in Nigeria. Thanks to Campbell McDermid who provided English-American Sign Language Interpretation for us.
