Hello, all. My name is KatyLou_371, and I’ve been teaching myself ASL for about 5 years. It was love at first sign. I have wanted to be an interpreter since I started learning the language. My plan is to go back to school and become certified. I don’t have much experience with Deaf Culture, but I know a good bit of textbook information about it. I have had several interactions with Deaf people, including customers, who I have interpreted for, to take and order. Since I don’t have many interactions with the Deaf, I don’t have my Sign Name yet. I'm not sure exactly where I want to interpret, or what kind of environment I want to work in; I just know in my heart it’s something I’m destined for. I can’t see myself happy in any other career field. I do have some questions for anyone who is advanced in ASL, and would greatly appreciate any answers.
