The latest meeting that happened was on Sunday, February 21st. Unfortunately, due to getting a COVID test, I wasn’t able to attend the meeting and we couldn’t reschedule because not many other people were available on other days. Thankfully, Sinu was able to send me the meeting recording and I could watch that to retrieve […]

Catching up to my classmates with the learning of ASL hasn’t been as much of a struggle as I imagined it to be. I think the most prominent and difficult barrier to overcome is the Deaf or Hard of Hearing community’s standards or expectations. Those wouldn’t really be the right words for it, but there’s […]

So far, the most difficult and frustrating part of the beginning of my In-Depth project is finding an ASL mentor. First, I attempted contacting college and university professors if they had any students who could help, but after no e-mail reply, I deemed it a dead-end.

The most difficult mentoring challenge currently is keeping in contact with my mentor. Since we met in person and talked to each other in that way, he has made it clear that he doesn’t prefer using e-mail. Additionally, his first task he gave to me was quite large and I haven’t found myself needing to […]

Something that went well during our mentor sessions is clear communication and direct instruction. When working with my mentor, the instructions he gave me were very concise, which caused no problems when it came to receiving the list of materials needed and the direction I should take using those materials. There was no unnecessary information […]

So far, the process of my In-Depth project is a steady moving one. I have had a hard time getting any progress with the physical project because it has been difficult to find times to meet with my mentor, Mr. Findley. This would be my only frustration so far. We have met twice already, and […]

In-Depth Introductory Post

I have emailed Scott Findley, who is supposed to assist me with a mentor, but he has not gotten back to me.   For In-Depth, I will be exploring the world of cosplay prop making! I have been interested in cosplay for a while and I follow activity of professional cosplayers on social media. The cosplay world and […]
