To be honest I just want to be in a job where I can be of assistance to others. Given that I'm HoH myself, I find that I can relate to many who face similar issues. Though it has to be said, this forum has done a lot to enhance my understanding, especially with regards to conditions that I'm less familiar with, such as inner ear related conditions and associated issues, whether they be psychological or physical.
I've also developed an interest in hearing aids. Given that I wear one and the fact that my background is technology based, I can see where that interest came from!
So yeah, while I'm not experienced with deaf culture or BSL, I think my other attributes are quite strong and of course, I'm eager to learn.
