Hi, I'm Tamara

Hello everyone,

I'm going to try this website as a way of learning some ASL for mascot use.  I know sounds weird right?!  Here's the story- I am sometimes the mascot for my company.  The mascot is not allowed to talk, has limitations in mobility (no dunks for this guy), a head that is formed (no movement) and 4 fingered hands.  I try to be as expressive as I can with what I've got- hands on cheeks to be shocked, hands on mouth to be surprised, blow kisses, grab the eyeballs high above my head to "hide" them,  and lots of dancing.  Then the idea occurred to me that I may be able to incorporate some ASL.  Downside to this plan- 4 fingers and dexterity is limited.  So any positive, encouraging, exciting mascot like language I could use but more of a hand movement. Sorry... this is difficult to explain, but I have the best of intentions.

    • 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 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.
