I'm a senior at Suffolk University majoring in history. I've just accepted a position at Boston College's history MA program. I hope to specialize in Cold War history, and to be a history professor some day. I came out as transgender my senior year of high school, and began living as a woman after graduating in 2011.
Two years ago I saw the film Shape of a Voice. As a trans woman, I identified with the main character's feeling of loneliness. I started learning ASL to help create a society that includes everyone, not just hearing people. Perhaps I'll get a professorship at a deaf university some day.
I've often gone to lengths to educate others about the transgender community, and am willing to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to message me.
My name is Micky. I'm a beginning ASL student, and am going into ASL 3 for the Spring '19 quarter. I got into ASL because I had a Deaf friend back in grade school, and I felt bad that we couldn't communicate without an interpreter. I'm also hard of hearing myself, so I'd really like to learn more. I'd love to find people who want to chat and practice with me.
