Rahma’s Space

My name is Rahma, and I’m from Bangladesh. I am deaf. I am the only deaf person in my hearing family.  When I was 7 years old my family moved  to America so that they could find a a better educational system for  me.  So, they sent me to a mainstream school for  both hearing and deaf students. I was taught a an oral school but when I saw the first deaf person signing with their hands in my life. I knew that was my true native language and I was fascinated to learn ASL.  Now, I teach ASL in person and online throughout the U.S.A. and I share my beautiful language with everyone who is interested to learn about American Sign Language and deaf culture.

Please write to me and share you story too:-)
