About Ahmed Khalifa from Hear Me Out [CC]

Since I was born, I was born with hearing difficulty, which meant that I am not able to experience sounds the way hearing people do. I was officially diagnosed around 6 years old, but I still grew up in the mainstream hearing world which has its own challenges

My name is Ahmed Khalifa and I live in Edinburgh, UK. I identity myself as deaf/hard of hearing and I run a deaf awareness site called Hear Me Out! [CC], where I share useful tips and advice for hearing, d/Deaf and hard of hearing people, interview different individuals in and around the d/Deaf community and also share stories about the challenges that d/Deaf and hard of hearing people face.

The aim is to bridge the gap between the hearing and deaf worlds, because I believe the gap is too wide and with the help of education, information and support, that gap can be bridged together.

I have shared my own personal story on how the impact it can have on my life personally but share how the process of accepting it has meant that it allowed me to help others too.

As a content creator, I use blog posts, podcasts and videos as my choices of medium to share my messages to the world. In order for me to continue doing that, I would love for you to pledge on my Patreon account to help me support more people, to continue creating those contents and to ensure that they are all accessible (via transcripts and captions).

But more important, I would love for you to be part of the community, to share you stories and to receive exclusive perks from me that I wouldn't share with anyone and anywhere else.

So why am I doing this?

Well there are a number of reasons:

  • to better find a way to better provide content that resonates with people who requires it
  • understand what my audience want better
  • to create better quality content with the help of video/podcast editors
  • to manage my rising expenses and cover costs of creating additional content
  • to enable a long-term future of Hear Me Out! [CC] whilst also supporting more people
