That's awesome! Most of the interpreting I have done thus far has been music at church (I'm a member of a local Deaf church). I heard, when looking at one of the colleges I'm interested in attending, that Disney World needs theatrical interpreters (it's an option for the ITP students in practicum).
Making homeschool seminars & meetings accessible is an incredible aspiration! Are you talking about Deaf parents who are homeschooling their child(ren)? We don't have any in the area who even show an interest in that. I've met alot of skepticism while trying to be accepted in the Deaf culture and being homeschooled.
My goals and/or dreams... Well, God has called me into Deaf ministry. I already know that will mean different things at different seasons of life. I will probably start interpreting either in the schools or at church, depending on how soon I can get my national certification after I graduate. I love working with Deaf churches/missions at this point in my life because I have the time for that. But when God changes my season and it's my turn to be married and Mom, that will be more important, though I see myself helping out in a Deaf ministry at a hearing church during that season. Granted, God could totally blow my mind and change my expectations. I'm not limited to that, but I see myself serving in the church more than anywhere else. I'll do community freelance (I already know the legal situtations and probably medical aren't my cup of tea).
Ok, so that was a really long explanation. Sorry about that. I get excited when I tell people about terping and such. Perhaps you understand?
How did you get involved in interpreting? When did you meet a Deaf person for the first time?
Random search of "deaf" brought me to your page...
That's neat that you're studying to become an ASL interpreter... After I graduate, that's what I plan to do. Is there a specific area of interpreting you feel more called to than others?
