A Deaf 5th grader was eliminated from the National Spelling Bee after misspelling the word, "Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia," whose definition is fear of long words. She recently got a perfect score on SAT, already been accepted to attend Gallaudet this fall, but she rather play with her friends, having a normal childhood which is understandable. Her Deaf parents has been  supportive, despite the media distractions, allowing her to explore the world, accept new challenges, as she is our future.
