Ugandan deaf student off to university

Absolute congratulations to Everline Akware for passing her exams with such good grades. And congratulations to the Ugandan paper the Daily Monitor for reporting it.

But my real, secret, reason for posting it here is that I am thoroughly enjoying the well-meaning sentiment expressed in the most fantastically un-PC language.

Akware was born normal until a malaria attack took away her hearing.

It's childish and unfair to poke fun, but I'm honestly not. I just rather like it. And besides, I'm allowed to snigger at communities that are playing catch-up - I live in Devon... 😉
