Hello! I'm a hearing 19-year-old girl in Devon :) I started trying to learn BSL some time last year, through Youtube videos and BSL Dictionaries online. My Mum encouraged me to do an Introductory Course, and a few weeks ago I did my Level 1 (well, hopefully - haven't got the results back yet!) I love BSL and often prefer it to verbal speaking because I feel more confident when I use sign. I suffer from anxiety (social anxiety and OCD, mainly) which has a big impact on my life, and having something I feel so excited and motivated by is infinitely valuable in managing my anxiety! I've never been any good at learning foreign verbal languages but sign seems to come more naturally to me. It's a beautiful language and it makes me happy when I use what little of it I know :D

I'd love to practice BSL with somebody, I will be quite anxious as social interaction feels like a big challenge for me but I'm keen to give it a go!

Thanks for reading :)
