I am currently studying Psychology and plan to eventually get my masters in it; along with that, I am getting a bachelors in Social Work. I've always had a passion and extreme love for American Sign Language and have always wanted to be fluent. I am working towards a minor in ASL so that while practicing Psychology I make a difference and can make Psychology services more available to the deaf community. I also work in a place where deaf people often come in and would like to be able to help them without them having to struggle to lip read and get frustrated when others cannot figure out what they are trying to communicate. I have an extreme respect for the deaf community as I grew up with HOH friends and a mother who taught me my ASL alphabet very young so I could communicate with her at my concerts from the stands.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Zein, I'm hearing and are working with a few other people on a sci-fi action-platformer VR game that features a deaf main NPC that uses ASL to communicate with the player. The player can sometimes respond with single-word answers by picking up a word bubble that changes the hand shape and then making the corresponding gesture (e.g. pick up the fist for YES, then tilt the controller up and down) I am currently learning signing myself and I'm reaching out to communities to get feedback for authenticity and inclusion. I have some dialogue lines for the character but it would help a lot to get feedback, because I'm sure, a lot of lines / signs, are currently weird or out of place. I already got feedback from a discord community for the first line. I can share this here so you can get a better picture. Randy: Oh my God! There was an earthquake at the excavation site, and some sort of lightning storm. I'm not sure... are you okay? ASL: WOAH! Earthquake there mining place do-do. Loud lightning! Why no-idea. You alright you (eyebrows up)?   Here's me trying it myself but it will be hand-animated once it gets into the game.     Would anybody be intereseted/willing to give their input and feedback? I would share more of Randy's lines here to improve, fix, or correct them. It would be a great help!  Thank you for your time, Zein
