President Obama Responds To Deaf Student In Sign Language [VIDEO]

Post By RelatedRelated Post


Lots of people get giddy following even the briefest encounters with a president. But one Washington-area college student was especially elated that President Obama understood what he was saying. Or signing.

As first reported on Distriction, Stephon, a student at Prince George Community College, was standing in line after an event on energy policy with President Obama and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, waiting for a chance to shake hands with the president. As the president was shaking hands and making his way through the crowd, he met up with Stephon, who was born deaf.

“I am proud of you,” Stephon signed to the president.

Not missing a beat, President Obama signed back: “Thank you.”

Another deaf student then signed to the president, “I love you.” The president smiled back at her and shook her hand.

An elated Stephon later recounted his experience on YouTube via American Sign Language.
