I was so embarrassed

Recommended Posts

HI Everyone 

I'm Vinnie,  I'm 34, I work for a Uk Holiday Airline, I'm Cabin Crew ✈️ and I've had way to many embarrassing situation on the aircraft with Deaf people which has made me want to learn BSL, I don't think it's acceptable for any person to be left out or excluded just because they;re Deaf/HOH, and even if I wont be able to sign everything i think it's important to be able to sign the basics, Airports are crazy enough for hearing people as it is, I cant even imagine what it's like for a deaf person trying to get information, i get lost most of the time and I work at the airports. This should be included in general education at schools for all kids. its common courtesy. and even if my basic signing helps someone in needs of help or being able to provide a better travel experience then it's 100% worth it . ALL AIRPORTS should at least have one person on duty at all times that can sign to help out if needed or just to provide general information.

    • Hi, I'm a musician and artist and learning BSL to improve my communication skills and start the process of developing performances/artwork/events that are suitable and interesting for both D/deaf and hearing audiences/artists.

    • Hello, please could anyone help me with the sign for Ready, Steady/Set, Go!  Thank you in advance
    • Hi everyone 🙂
    • I'm a student nurse and realise that some may need a nurse who understands BSL. Learning sign also encourages inclusivity and diversity. It's good to chat to people from all walks of life.
    • I have grown up with my sisters, and one is profoundly deaf so i have always been able to sign from a young age. Signing with my sister and family members has been fine and a good way of communication. However, when at work ( i work as a manager in a restaurant) i have always found it difficult to use sign with other people as i get nervous (it doesn't stop me). I would love to become more confident and one day become an interpreter so i can help people and grow my skills.
