Hey everyone, my name is Brandon! I am a signing language interpreter major at Mt.SAC. I've been singing fluently for about 5-6 years, but still learning nevertheless. I met my first deaf boy when i was in elementary school. Back when i was a kid i didn't understand what deaf was. Overtime, his mother came in to teach us deaf culture and some signs to communicate with him. I loved learning different signs. My favorite sign were both TURTLE & SEA TURTLE. Unfortunately, down the line i had no one to practice with and forgot most of the signs. When i was growing up i would either pass by people that were signing or even meet deaf people and was afraid to sign anything else besides HELLO, SEA TURTLE, & TURTLE. Once i got into college, i decided to take an ASL class and loved it ever since.

    • Hi!  I live in Jasper, Alabama and I am a preacher wanting to work in deaf ministry.  I myself am hard of hearing and am progressively going deaf.  I grew up with neighbors who were deaf and taught me to sign a little, then my cousin moved back home from Talladega School for the deaf and she helped me, but I left it for a long time.  I have been studying for a year now and I desperately need someone to video chat with so that I can go further.  I look forward to talking to you all, thank you.
    • I've been learning on my own for a few months as work permits....stopped for awhile, and back at it now with determination to complete ASL3 this year...I'm currently finishing Unit 2 of ASL 1. :)  Mostly using ASLTC and supporting with handpseak and signingsavvy. Following HandsUpSD, ASLStore, and DeafiningASL on Insta. Super lucky to have met an Auslan interpreter online who is now learning ASL (and already streets ahead of me!), so I get some practice and tips from her. Have a great day everyone! 
    • Alternatively, it seems as if we could send videos back and forth on this platform. i've done that before with an app called Marco Polo as well. You can find me on there @kylbrdfrd 
    • Sure, what is the time difference for us? I am available at multiple points during the day, so I feel we could work it out. I'm not sure about guidelines for this site but if it allows you, you can email me at [email protected] Thanks!
