Amy Wong comes to Rochester

Greg Livadas, who often covers Deaf-related topics for the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (and has interviewed Matthew on several occasions), was invited to bring a photographer and cover the get-acquainted party for the new Miss Deaf America, Amy Wong, sponsored by DEAF LIFE. He and Photographer Andrea Melendez came to Mario’s Via Abruzzi restaurant on August 21, 1998, to meet Wong, interview her, and get some photos for a story. They couldn’t stay long, but gathered what they needed before the banquet got underway.

Matthew had invited Wong to Rochester for DEAF LIFE’s traditional photo shoot and cover story (published in the October 1998 issue). The banquet/chat session brought together some friends, prominent members of the local Deaf community, and VIPs, all curious and eager to meet Wong. It was a success, and the guests went home that night tired but happy. The Livadas-Melendez article appeared next day in the Democrat & Chronicle’s August 22, 1998 issue.
