Irina Drytchak got in touch with us last week to tell us about a signed poetry clip she has written and performed in, which was filmed and edited by Deaf director Bim Ajadi. The clip has voiceover and subtitles.

She says: “The aim of the poem is to share my experiences with people and especially those who are CODA’s themselves. Hopefully it can inspire others and be seen as a support network.”
