What made you learn American Sign Language?

I was born deaf, so I wanted to be sure I could talk to other deaf people!

What is your experience thus far with ASL?

I started acquiring ASL as my primary language, but then my parents switched to Cued Language when I wasn't progressing in English and literacy. By age 5 I started learning ASL again, but this time as a second language. I didn't get much practice though until I joined ICODA at age 10. I was exposed to ASL at least once or twice a week thereafter, and then I was exposed to it almost daily in college, at RIT.

Introduction

I'm a 23 year old recent graduate of RIT. I live in Falcon, CO with my husband and our cat, Turk.
