I met a community of people like me who are new signers and alsso many with cochlear implants. So even though I went to a mainstream school, I still wanted to learn ASL because I felt like it was something that I needed to learn. It’s a part of me. Since I was born deaf, I felt like I needed to know ASL. With JumpStart, I found friends on the first day – my roommate and a great girl I met in the lobby who I’m best friends with now. I love it here.
