I'm learning ASL because I'm deaf. I wasn't able to learn ASL as a child - and I regret that VERY much. I wish that I had the opportunity to learn ASL as a child. But oh well. It's in the past now. What matters is that I have the opportunity to learn NOW (as a teenager). I'm trying to learn as much as I can!
There really should be a "I'm learning ASL because I'm deaf/hoh" option on this poll...
