My intrest In BSL started because I was in love¬†with watching mr tumble¬†(a British kids show where they do sign language) ūüėā. I was saddened when I realised that it wasn‚Äôt something taught in school. I was fuelled to learn when I would see deaf people coming into my workplace and people acting so strangely around them because they were¬†unable to communicate with them. It was further fulled when I was diagnosed with an EVA which meant I could also be loosing my hearing in the coming years.¬†
