Deaf and HOH Uniteam Group has successfully accomplished their goal of campaigning for his win together with Vice President Sara Duterte. The group is celebrating with President BBM.

However, I'm not deaf. I don't have that special sense that something is off that a deaf person can "see and feel".
Part of the interpreter's training and experience should include some self-discipline so that the interpreter always makes a strong effort to remain detached, neutral, and as completely impersonal and objective as possible.
