About me

Being involved in the deaf community is something very close to my heart and learning BSL to help communicate to the deaf is always what I have wanted to achieve. I have always had passion for BSL and this fascinating language will always be a part of my personal and working life. I have spent much of my time being involved in the deaf community​,​ such as being a volunteer as a Youth worker at Manchester deaf centre​,​ supporting the development of deaf football like for Manchester United and Everton deaf team and volunteering as a communicator for the deaf in many services . This has given me the opportunity to develop a leadership role​,​ communication and team working skills. Many of the children I worked with at the deaf centre suffered from genetic diseases such as profound deafness and down Syndrome. This had a profound effect on me as it allowed me to witness and understand the effect genetic diseases have on people first hand. I found the experience incredibly rewarding and educational. I provide British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation within the UK Deaf community. I provide translation support at a wide variety of sectors. Including services provided within the Digital world of currency​,​ education​,​ medical​,​ social and sporting events.
