For Sebs

Dear Sebs,
it's impossible to find the right words and react for the fact you passed away. When we met you first time during one of our online events, you introduced yourself as someone who is good in reading others' emotions. You proved it later by your activity in the Accessibility Committee, IFHOHYP’s Study Session, meetings and social meet ups, by taking care of everybody and making everybody feeling included. It was also you who wanted to gather everyone regardless of their language. You were the group spirit, always laughing in your special way, discussing about movies, cracking jokes, but also strongly advocating for the needs of hard of hearing community - both national and international.
You dreamed of a better world and now this world is one fighter’s soul poorer. Yet, Sebs, being sad we feel also happy and honoured that we could meet you and witness the joy or passion you always shared.
With love,
Your IFHOHYP friends
We’d also like to encourage everybody to consider donation for Sebastien’s family, to help them pay the costs of medical care:
