Khyiana Tate is a recent grad of the Detroit School of Arts. She recently published her first book, Signing with Khy. Inspired by the lack of Black and Brown representation in ASL books, Khyiana published her own! Khyiana’s goal is to raise awareness in the hearing community about Deafness so everyone can communicate. Future plans include publishing books on numbers, colors, and her life story. Khyiana’s future is wide open. AADHH is so proud of Khyiana. She is a shining example of excellence and determination - letting nothing get in the way of accomplishing her goals.

Khyiana is truly the embodiment of AADHH's mission.
Khyiana was not seeing herself, a person of color, in books about American Sign Language so she made her own. She showcased family and friends signing the alphabet. This is the first book of many more to come.
Khyiana talks more about the motivation behind Signing with Khy and the exciting things she has in store for the future!
