What I would love to do for a living is to be an American Sign Language Interpreter. How would I change the world with this gift? I would help to change it by not only doing my part in being the bridge that helps to communicate between people, but I would help the world to see the importance of ASL in everyday life, while having a low budget. I plan to have a program of my own one day that I want to make a part of my Church Ministry and teach students old and young sign language for a low fee to no charge. This program will help students to gain credits towards their schools/colleges so kids can get a head start in their education. This will also be for people who just want to learn something new. I want to make sure that everyone has a chance to learn something without the burden of a costly course. I hope to share how ASL can be a benefit and not be looked on as if it’s some disability. I want my students to see why some deaf people are very passionate about being deaf. Why they’re so protective of the only thing that they can call their own. I pray that my students will take this skill and use it for themselves whether it be for volunteering, for their own jobs or if they want to use it for Ministry purposes themselves.
