Hello.  My name is Steve.  Sorry for taking a long time to write my intro.  I am hearing 46 years old gay man living in south Texas. I have one year of learning American sign language under my belt.  I completed one year in April 2021.  I love signing.  I love learning languages.  I speak Spanish as well.  I attempted to learn sign language in 1998 from a book.  The book was just black and white drawings and it was very difficult to understand the signs.  I tried again in 2005, but with no luck.  I finally dove into it a year ago.  I had a very good reason for wanting to learn; personal reasons.  Now here I am, going into the second year of signing.  It is very difficult and a bit boring to learn on your own.  Let me clarify, I have two qualified ASL instructors.  I do not see them every month, but I have stuck with them for over a year now.  When I do not see them, I send them videos of my progress.  I sign to myself all the time.  I finger spell when I drive.  But I have no ASL friends to sign with.  Hoping to make some friends, but until then, I continue to learn on my own, with the help of my two instructors.

    • Hi! My name is Camille. I have a college assignment that requires me to interview anyone who wears cochlear implants, who are hard of hearing or is deaf. I'm hoping we can meet up or maybe set up a virtual meet, like facetime or maybe zoom? I know you're probably wondering why should you help such a random person like me? I don't know why but..I can assure you it's for a good cause. It's for educational purposes. Your time will be much appreciated. If you're interested, please email me
    • Hi Andie! I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling. Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]
    • Hello, I'm Kiara (hearing), currently a student in ASL- English Interpreting program. I'm enrolled in ASL 4. If you are in the EST time zone and looking for a partner, let me know.  
    • Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones!
