Born to dance but also born deaf, Lin Chang Lan is a 34-year-old contemporary dancer from Taiwan. To Lin, her hearing impairment is not a challenge but has taught her how far her senses can take her. By feeling the vibrations of the music and thanks to support from her mother, Lin has made a name for herself as a dancer in Taiwan.
In the past few years, Lin has turned to technology to connect with other dance companies in the country, and even started her own YouTube channel. Serving as both an interpreter and communication channel, technology has allowed Lin to learn, teach and be a part of a team without restrictions – something she never imagined possible given her impairment.
Thanks to the power of vibrations, Lin can express herself through dance and empower others to do the same.
