About me: Yuki was born deaf (apparently hereditary) 19 years ago. Although she wears headphones, she can't distinguish sounds or where they come from. She communicates in coded Japanese Sign Language (bimodal), but she often uses notebooks or other methods for people who don't know sign language, like her own family. Because of bad experiences, she only oralizes with her family. She for her part knows how to read lips.
Shee attended a school for the deaf (which was limited to four classmates) until graduating from high school. Although she grew up in a very limited study environment, her mother encouraged her to participate in various activities to prepare her for the real world and even encouraged her to go to university.
