Rian Gayle, Jamaican-born, had ambitions to improve the life of Deaf people that inspired him to leave home and pursue his studies in the United States.   Rian did an internship in Mumbai, India training Deaf workers at a nongovernmental organization, Mirakle Couriers.  His other internship was with HandiRian with Mirakle couriercap International where he helped write their publication, Making it Work.   

Upon graduating, he returned to his homeland to fight for the changes he wanted to see in Jamaica, such as fighting for the rights to drive, working on early emergency warning systems, and increasing the confidence and education of young Deaf women by organizing a Miss Deaf Jamaica contest. Today, Rian is working at the Jamaica Association for the Deaf as a Research Officer fulfilling his dream of improving Deaf lives.  Join his Facebook page the Jamaican Deaf Community
