Hi everyone!

I'm pleased to be able to register in this bullentin board after it changed its colors. It made things easier for me to read.

I'll introduce myself briefly. My name is Chasity. I'm from North Carolina. I graduated from North Carolina School for the Deaf in 1995 and went straight to Gallaudet University. Unfortunately, I did not graduate from Gallaudet University. In fact, I only completed one semester at Gallaudet University.

I was born Deaf and legally blind. I grew up Culturally Deaf and have been raised an ASLer. ASL is my first and native language. Then WRITTEN English followed as my second language. I am quite fluent in Braille because of my poor eyesight. To further expand my knowledge of languages, I know SOME written Portuguese. I cannot speak or lipread. I even cannot comprehend words with/without hearing aids/auditory trainers.

My views are mostly consisted of what a Deaf Culturist possesses. I'm a strong supporter of ASL and am dead-set against cochlear implants in kids, oralsim, and other "hearing-minded" related methods. However, I might will support Cued Speech/English when I have full understanding of how the method works. Actually, I'm more interested in seeing d-Deaf people to develop BOTH good ASL and English skills. This is why I'm all for Bi-Bi education.

Ok, enuff said for now. :)
