I began taking Malia’s sign language class in early Spring of 2008. Malia not only showed us the word sign, she also explained the nuances of the language. She took time to show the minute (to hearing people) differences between signs that appear the same, as well as the different signs for the same word in English (for example, the word “run” has several different signs/meanings). I loved the cultural insight Malia provided in each class and the time she would take after class to answer individual questions. Her teaching helped me improve not only my sign language skills, but also my understanding and appreciation of the Deaf community and culture. I look forward to her next class! – Kelly Ann Steinruck

My name is Brooke Leibowitz. I am 11 years old and a member of Girl Scout Troop #20246 in Wellington, FL. I had to do a community service project as a part of my Girl Scout obligations. I searched the internet and found Malia Johnson and Deaf Talk, LLC online. I sent her an e-mail asking her if she could do a presentation for my troop about the deaf community. She said yes even though she lives three hours away in Orlando! It was an amazing and unforgettable meeting. Malia held the girls attention with her great personality for two hours, and they learned so much! Malia was funny and creative and very open to all of our questions and answered them very honestly. The amazing thing is that she managed to make us all feel comfortable even though we were a bit nervous about our ability to communicate to a Deaf person. She made us laugh and learn at the same time! After the meeting, I asked some people’s opinions of the presentation. EVERYBODY loved it, and was very moved by Malia, including the parents! I am so glad to have met Malia. She is an inspiration to me and I thank her for everything! – Brooke Leibowitz

Halifax Health retained the services of Deaf Talk, LLC to conduct education presentations regarding deaf and hard of hearing culture to registration staff. The sessions were extremely well received by the staff. Ms. Johnson’s presentations was professional and interesting, allowing the staff to hear a first hand account of potential difficulties deaf and hard of hearing persons face in hospital and clinical settings. I strongly recommend Deaf Talk, LLC to any company that is interested in promoting understanding of deaf and hard of hearing culture and wish to enhance their ADA training programs. I was extremely pleased with the level of professionalism Ms. Johnson portrayed, and the service that Halifax Health received was excellent. I would not hestitate to contact Deaf Talk, LLC again for future education programs. – A. P., Associate General Counsel

Malia Johnson is an excellent instructor. She is so open to questions and has taught me so much about the Deaf culture. I had tried to teach myself sign language and it wasn’t until having an instructor like Malia that I was able to finally communicate with my deaf friends and co-workers. I have gained confidence in my signing and I have noticed others in my class become more confident in the use of our newly acquired skills. I would recommend Malia’s class to anyone wanting to either further their knowledge or begin a new journey. I will continue in my learning process with Malia as my guide. – Debbie

Let me thank *you*, Malia for being such an amazing person and teacher! You are truly wonderful and I enjoyed the class very much! – Carissa

First, from everyone here at Furnishings, we can’t thank you enough for taking the time and sharing your experiences and helping us to understand what challenges a person has with being Deaf.

Your feelings and what you project are so genuine, I believe that is what makes you a very special person. You being you. Thank you.
