Recommended Posts

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.

Hey Katy! My name is Skylar, I have been signing for about three years self taught and now in college taking classes to be an interpreter. Just like you I fell in love with signing when I first started. I find the language beautiful and love being immersed in it. I have met a lot of deaf people from going to events and interact with deaf people regularly so I do have my sign name. My plan is to transfer to a school where they have a strong interpreter community as well as Deaf community. I would love to get to know you and sign with you. My email is [email protected] 

 

Feel free to email me anytime.

I want to improve and be able to sign with fluency.

    • I’ve always loved having options to switch up my home’s look, and the slipcovers for couches from Menotti gave me just that. They fit perfectly and are incredibly easy to change out when I want a new colour or pattern. It’s like having several couches in one! These covers are a smart choice if you like refreshing your decor often.
