About the team

Hush is run completely by a core team of differently-abled persons. Our Deaf TeaRistas lead participants into a silent space of awareness and reflection, supported by our Hearing facilitators who are persons with or in-recovery from mental health conditions.

Aside from the core team, we have a partner community of Deafies and volunteers who support us on project basis.

“Silence saved me from my close shave with depression 12 years ago when the colossal collapse of my life descended upon me.”

(also Nominated Member of Parliament, Republic of Singapore)

Chua Ning Pei | Lead Partner, Engagement & Growth | The Cause Loyalist

I am a survivor of depression. I am Hearing. I was totally in awe by the idea of a silent teabar in bridging the hearing and non-hearing into one. Creating a paradigm shift in empowering the marginalized who generally trails in the shadows to stand tall in dignity in the forefront, bringing awareness and mindfulness to the highly stressed and playing a part in contributing to the greater good, making a difference in their very own unique abilities. I see hope and possibilities. Empowerment as well as inclusivity. As a firm believer in cause awareness, Hush takes advocacy to a brand new level. In 2017, I created iaminvisible as a manifestation of my love for photography and human stories.

I am Deaf. A mutual friend introduced me to Hush, while I was still unsure about finding work. I enjoy being part of the inclusive Hush workplace as I can comfortably work together with and learn from other deaf partners. Not only does Hush champion mental health across different organisations, but also within the Hush workplace. The flexibility allows me to take time off for my own mental well-being, with no rush in choosing between the two especially as a mother of a young child.

I am Deaf. In Hush, we celebrate silence which Deaf people are used to living with, and through Hush, raise awareness of the Deaf. I joined Hush to help spread the beauty of sign language to you. Going through a Hush experience will grant you the meaning of being in silence and without sound, just like how Deaf people live with, using sign language as our "voices" to communicate by sight. When we communicate right, it brings understanding between the deaf & hearing, and life seems just better with that kind of awareness Hush advocates for, don't you think? I am there for you, anytime anywhere with my joys of signing.

We are brewing a revolution of silence for good. Come join us!

Hush is run completely run by a core team of differently-abled persons, and supported by a community of Hearing partners who volunteer on a project basis. Join us on this silent revolution to advocate for inclusiveness, empathy and empowerment in society.
