Hi, my name is Jess and I am 26 years old! I live in the East Midlands and I currently work as a server in a restaurant, which I enjoy a lot. I decided to learn BSL after serving a lady at work who was deaf, and she had a friend with her who could interpret what I was saying, but it made me realise that perhaps I should try and learn some BSL so that I can communicate with deaf people more easily, especially if they ever come into the restaurant on their own. I am trying to make a conscious effort to be more inclusive and available to all kinds of people. I am really enjoying learning BSL, I have learned a lot already in such a short space of time and I am excited to put it into practice more. In my spare time I love to read books and love going for walks.
