I'm learning because it is something to me i feel i should learn. There are so many wonderful people out there who live in a whole different kind of world that is still the same world as those like me who can speak. I honestly want to learn from their point of view. Learning a language like Spanish or French is just not something that is pulling for me to learn. ASL is just one that is :x

I am learning sign language because I wish to connect with the Deaf community and I am majoring in ASL interpreting and I want to become a good interpreter that respects cultural nuance.  I'm just starting out, I just finished ASL 1 and I am in search of deaf friends that would be willing to practice with me.

My name is Bekah and I am learning ASL because I have dyslexia which makes written languages like Spanish and French hard for me to learn like other students my age. I am currently taking ASL 2 at my high school and wish to become a better signer so when I enter the work field, I will be able to help deaf patients receive the care they need. (I want to become a nurse who works in the NICU/deliver babies.)

Thanks for reading about me!!!

    • 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.  
    • Hi Courtney, are you available now? Or, when would be a good time? Thank you!
    • Hey my name is courtney! im looking for a signing buddy too. I would be more than happy to practice together!
    • Hi everyone, 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.
