Hello! I'm Anja, and I am learning ASL. Aside from the fact that I think it is a beautiful language, I want to normalize ASL in everyday life and I want to ensure that those who are Deaf or hard of hearing have the same access to information as everyone else. Interpreters sometimes miss information unfortunately, that is part of why I want to be the best interpreter possible so that everyone in the situation knows what is going on. I tried to learn ASL on my own years ago but gave up because no one believed in me and that I did not have too many uses for it at the time. I hope to meet fellow learners/teachers, Deaf and hard of hearing individuals on this site!
