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.

Hey Katy, my name is Phylicia and American Sign Language I love learning about it. Also, going to events and communicating with deaf/heard of hearing will practicing and learning new signs with my fellow classmates. ASL is a beautiful language. I don't want to forget any of it. I want to improve and be able to sign with fluency.

    • My name is Kylie and I am a sign language student that is seeking some new friends to sign with and some more practice for my major. I am ITP (interpreter program) intended and would love to have some conversations and get to know some new people interested in the same thing! I am in ASL 5, so technically my sophomore year of signing and will be getting screened to be in the program in May! Very nervous but looking forward to learning and improving. Nice to meet you all! Happy signing!

    • Hi - I am happy to send video messages with anyone on Glide - My Glide ID is aqmdesx.  I am a beginner, so right now this is the best way for me because I can play all/part of your video messages back over and over until I can figure it out in order to respond!  But signing slowly is also greatly appreciated!  Feel free to add me on Glide and send a message.
    • hello, I would be more than happy to practice. Please get back to me as soon as you can
