1. Miriam Hunter, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I suppose some might think that be being a deaf principal of a high school is pretty interesting.

2. What do you do for fun?

I love to swim. I was an open water competitive swimmer all through my school years.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I don’t put off anything. Success doesn’t just happen. It’s planned and accomplished by people who don’t want to be spectators. I don’t want to be a spectator.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

For my accomplishments not to mean anything.

5. What do you want out of life?

For the world to see me before my deafness.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Family and friends.

7. Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

I love to cook and bake and entertain. I generally read hospitality magazines.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Not my deafness. It is part of my identity as a whole.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

No pets, but I love the marine life I swim with.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

I would love to meet Helen Keller. Her first spoken words to the world were, “I am not dumb now.” She is inspiration to me, and that is how I feel as well.

  1. I would LOVE to win this book. I studied sign language for over 6 years, worked as a stage manager for a hearing/hard of hearing/deaf production group for 5 years. I miss being involved with the Deaf, they have a culture all their own and it wasn’t easy being accepted into their world.

    I also love the LIS line of books. 🙂

    😀 Smiles & Blessings,
    Cindy W.
