"When Daysi Perdomo came to the United States as a 7-year-old, she could barely speak. At home in Honduras, doctors had determined that she was hearing-impaired. In 2013, father, Getulio, managed to bring Daysi to the New York City, where he had moved years earlier to find work. Reunited, the two live with Getulio's girlfriend and her children just blocks from the ocean. Daysi wears hearing aids and attends a school for deaf students. She has learned to communicate in 3 languages: English, Spanish and sign language, which she is trying to teach the family. "I don't find it that difficult," her father said.
