Cäsar Jacobson is a Norwegian/Canadian activist.
Cäsar is a gender, diversity and equality rights activist.
UN Women Youth Champion. Marking Women’s History during International Women’s Day at United Nations to discuss equality; for deaf and diverse persons.
The Government of Canada subsequently interviewed Cäsar to discuss her views on equality [directly], rather than from other sources. This was a commemoration interview for International Women’s Day regarding her involvement on the UN High-Level Panel.
Cäsar is the first known Deaf pageant winner to represent Canada and go on to internationals.
Cäsar also won city and regional competitions prior to her National Title, roughly over the course of 6 years.
Subsequently became Miss Peace in Europe which lead to her involvement in United Nations as she began to create a platform for the deaf or those who utilize sign language of a method of communication.
She advocates and uses the DUO ECG + Digital Stethoscope, a portable and powerful combined ECG + digital stethoscope designed for clinical use.
Cäsar has been spotted testing the ClearMask™ at the ADARA-AMPHL conference in Baltimore and in the ADARA-AMPHL classroom studying the Helen Keller National Centre for Deaf-Blind in 2019 in Baltimore. She enjoys working with Deaf and Blind groups and their cultures and advocating for their needs which she believes translates into needs for those who see and hear as 55% of communication is visual. Standard surgical masks block faces and prevent the ability to see facial expressions, read lips, and establish rapport.
Wanting to work with people, she took a 9-month Health Care Assistant program that was rolled out in 2017, as a means to test her desire and ability without a deaf support system while in college after losing the residual hearing in her remaining ear. After graduating she started studying her MCAT and her interests are in neuroscience and astronomy.
Cäsar is Bilaterally Profound Deaf, when losing the residual of her one ear, it was suggested that she go to a Cochlear Implant. Later she was unilaterally implanted with a HiRes™ Ultra 3D Cochlear Implant from Advanced Bionics.
Cäsar utilizes ASL [American Sign Language] and the Cochlear Implant as a tool; the cochlea implant is not a restorative medical device but is known for some benefits that vary from person to person depending on the type of hearing loss and the severity and etiology.
