Hi my name is Craig. I am learning sign because I think everybody deserves to be heard. I have been in multiple situations where I have not been able to communicate effectively with somebody who uses sign as their main form of communication and would like to have the ability to be able to communicate if this happens again so that they feel more included. I recently saw some examples of this on television that really struck a cord with me as I have travelled extensively and know how it feels to live in a community where it is difficult to communicate. It is difficult to be able to fully express yourself under these circumstance and show your full personality. I work in social services so being able to sign would be especially beneficial in my line of work.
