Hey, I'm Bree!
Los Angeles, California
Bree K. Jones is a Deaf Culture Merger and the Creator of web-series I Hear You. This Biola graduate and millennial extraordinaire is changing the way the hearing world views the Deaf Community.
Bree was first introduced to American Sign Language and Deaf Culture in middle school, but she didn’t discover her passion she had for this community until her junior year in college.
Understanding the challenges that are before the Deaf community, Bree’s mission is to merge both the hearing and the Deaf communities together by breaking down stereotypes and easing social anxieties between both worlds.
Bree has held workshops for the community and has received a grant for the work she’s doing from the Pollination Project. She too has won an award from Black Women rock Nationally Women’s Organization and a certificate of recognition for raising awareness to the importance of sign communications for the Deaf community by the 64th district. Bree has had the opportunity to interview on several empowering radio shows, featured in the HuffPost as one of the top 15 youth to look out for, on PopSugar, Ai-Media, the RiRi Show, and other media outlets.
Bree is currently one of the Creators and Executive Producers of web series I Hear You.
Because Bree believes in being well versed in her field, she is currently enrolled in an interpreter training program to strengthen her interpreting skills and relationship building with the Deaf.
I Hear You
In a world of “no sound” how will 5 college students; 3 Deaf and 2 Hearing learn to HEAR one another?
This project got the green light!
