Description of the event: 
As the SE&EA committe of ESN Trakya in all the programs and events we have held we pursued a goal; to be beneficial for the people and to affect them positively. The Stories with Sign Language was one of these events. The Stories with Sign Language event’s sketch was prepared in the beginning of the fall semester and till the event’s day it was nearly the result of a 6 months team work. After a throughly done quest we started our practices with Denizhan Kurt, an expert in sign language who accepted to support us elatedly, with whom our energy could easily comply, and who could understand us and the importance of this event. The Stories with Sign Language was held to draw attention to the Sign Language phenomenon which these days is thrown out of focus however it is a must for most of us to learn it. We struggled to organize such an event to underline the importance of Sign Language and to provide a durable bridge between us and the handicapped people. After a six month intense work our audiences’ positive feedback impassioned us. The event took place unerringly as we had planned and we reached the goal we had set through the support we received from our audience. Along with the positive feedbacks we received from the people living in our area we think we definitely have been able to transfer our will to our audience successfully. We hope such projects and events accrue upon time throughout Turkey and even our world so that the bridge between us and the handicapped people grow stronger day by day, for none of us is supreme to or different from one another.
