Announcement: Australian Board Members on WFD & WFDYS
Congratulations Shirley Liu & Drisana Levitzke-Gray!
Hello, I’m Debra- Deaf Australia’s president. I have exciting news to share with you all. Deaf Australia made two nominations for board members for WFD and WFDYS. We are here in Jeju, is that the right sign? Yes, that’s how you sign it. And I’m excited to announce that Shirley Liu has been voted to sit on the World Federation of the Deaf board as a Board Member. Also, Drisana Levitzke-Gray has been voted in as a Board Member for the World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section. It’s exciting. Absolutely exciting. It’s going to be exciting 4 years working together with Shirley. Absolutely! I’ve been working with World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section for 8 years and I have really enjoyed my time. It’s quite emotional looking back at all of the work that we have done, but I have a lot of faith in the new WFDYS board. It’s been a great transition for you from the WFDYS board to the WFD board and it’s a great opportunity for you both to work together across the two divisions representing Australia. Yes, that’s right! Many thanks to Deaf Australia for their belief in us and nominating us as board members. We look forward to our commitment to the global deaf community as well as continuing our work for Australia. Also, thank you to Deaf Youth Australia who have supported me for a very long time.
