Maryana Yatseviyuk of Ivano-Frankivsk has won two prestigious titles – Miss Deaf Europe and Vice Miss Deaf World. But her life is not likely to change much.

“Winners of common beauty contests usually get expensive gifts, do charity and start their modeling careers, but that’s not the case here,” says Yatseviyuk. “We don’t get any benefits. A month after the contest our lives become pretty much the same.” 

This is just one of many differences that the beauty talks about when describing the abyss between her own world and “the world of people who can hear,” as she calls it.
