Introducing Myself

Hi, 

My name is Linzie, although everyone knows as Luna and so now I kind of go by it. I guess she is my cooler more outgoing alter ego.

When I was 17 I met a 4 year old girl who had down syndrome. She signed at me with the biggest smile and I had no way to communicate back except smile too, and my heart mushed a little inside. ok a lot!!!  I vowed I would learn sign language and like every 17 yr old I got busy and I forgot. However I have never forgotten her!

I was furloughed during lockdown and decided to make positive use of my time and actually do the one thing I have always wanted to but not the time to do. Soooo here I am, learning at last and completely loving it. 

I am the person who will watch two people signing in public, and maybe seen as rude for staring, however, I find it a beautiful language and am so glad I have taken this step. My signing is slow and I am hoping to speed up. I don't know many Deaf people. I have friends who are in the deaf community due to their children, but again not many. I hoped by joining here I could meet people and, well I don't know chat, learn and make friends.

I often don't come out on page as loving as my words are meant so I am hoping this is as endearing reading as is being intended. 

 

I look forward to any replies. 

 

Love Luna x

    • Hi AIP27, I think it would just be - Ready Go, Unless anyone else knows different.
    • My name is Laura and I am completing the BSL course as I am a student nurse and I hope to enhance my communication skills.
    • I work in a surgery as a care coordinator helping the elderly frail and supporting people with learning disabilities. I thought this would be an additional skill set to have 
    • 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. 
    • I don’t have a great answer, as many do that I have read here. I am just enjoying learning new things, I want to be able to be inclusive when possible and generally just fascinated when I see people having conversations in sign.
