Why I'm Learning ASL

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Are you willing to chat/sign with someone who is pretty rusty at their signing. I would be honored to get to know you better. Either reply or email me [email protected] Thank You! John

    • Hello, I am John from Milwaukee, WI CST looking for a signing partner. I went through the 1st year of ITP Interpreter Technician Program at my community college and had to drop out due to learning disability, I love to sign however I can't interpret. I'm 45-year-old male married 1 year, I was in college when I was 20 so a few years ago. I think I might feel more comfortable with a female signer. Please send me an email. Thank You!
