A Saint To Watch Over Me. Who Dat!
Many times a cliche is over used. That’s not the case in the incredible story of dedication and perseverance that you’re about to read. Tonette Arabie, an employee with Pixus Digital Printing relates to this all too well. Born the second child of four girls, she grew up in a very non-traditional household. There was plenty of love to go around, rules to follow and discipline that’s usually associated with growing up. But, what make this family’s story so unique is that both parents have been deaf since infancy, and her father blind since the age of thirty-five.
What makes this story even more incredible is that both her mom and dad were also athletes growing up. Tonette played softball at the age of 5, and not long after began playing basketball at the age of 12 which lasted throughout her high school years.
“Growing up in a non-traditional household made me extremely competitive, never settling for less than the best and striving to be number one in everything I do. It has taught me how to be a positive team player, always eager to learn and never forget that at times you will fail, but it’s how you bounce back that counts.”
