I am writing about interviewing Deaf Persons for my ASL research paper. The first person is Christian DeGuzman. He is profoundly deaf since birth, and about 2 or 3 years old later they found out that he was deaf that’s why. Christian grew up in Bay Area, went to mainstream school with Deaf and Hard of Hearing kids after he had full day for mainstream class without his interpreter after he transferred to different school for his sophomore year. His mom wanted to put him in the mainstream school full day no more DHH class. He has two both interpreter at the same time but they know ASL hearing people. Christian’s one old interpreter’s name is Kathy Jackson. His families are hearing full expect he’s deaf so his family knows some ASL too. They have only ASL language. He learned ASL from school since preschool began. He is a good student to be smart and to be happy as deaf but he wish he was hearing too. His dream is to acting and become an actor because he really wanted to be an actor that’s why he wants to help charity or donate for children support. His hobby is photography and talk to friends, etc. He would like to teach ASL to his children in the future. And his favorite TV show is 7th Heaven. The second person is Angie Arney. She was born, and growing up in Redding, California on July 1, 1965 until now. She went to hearing school; her hearing classmates learned a little sign. Her families are all hearing exactly she’s deaf, but her daughter Brenda can sign very good. Her families are not communicating well. They know a little bit sign. Her type of sign language is SEE and her teacher Mrs. Orr taught her sign language. Her goal is to get a new job, a good paycheck. She loves to making photography, hiking, making wood, etc. She met her husband named Tom in 2000, and married in 2008. She accept being deaf. The third person is Lo Saelee. He was born in Chiang Mai, Thailand, but moved to USA for 33 year. Lo was growing up in Redding, California, moved to Seattle, Washington. His birthday is September 16 1981. He went to a mainstream hearing school during he was in elementary school at 7 year old, then went to Shasta High School in 9th grade, last transferred to California School for the Deaf (Fremont, California). Lo’s families are all hearing exactly he’s deaf, his brother/sister sign good. Also his father/mother not signs well. Because it is hard to understand about Deaf culture they also don’t care about sign language. His type of sign language is oral-mainstreaming school, 6th grade (signing SEE). He is not proud being deaf and is single, and has no kids. His hobby is fishing, going to deaf events, and enjoys traveling. My conclusion is what I learned to interview with three deaf persons. They are all deaf like me. I am happy being deaf, but I am frustrated because it would be easy to communicate with hearing people, I want to be hearing like the hearing people are. I learned that Lo Saelee went to my school, graduated there, because I felt bad for him so he is not happy being deaf so I think it’s frustrated for him to communicate poorly with his family and trying to do his best, but he does not accept being deaf. Angie is very sweet because she’s nice and I've been known her and her daughter since Girl Scouts when I was little.
The first thing you must do is to organize your ideas into paragraphs. You probably have 5 paragraphs here, including your introduction, conclusion, and a paragraph for each person you interviewed.
Once you have reorganized your paper into paragraphs, post them here. MAKE SURE YOU PRESS THE ENTER KEY TWICE AT THE END OF EACH PARAGRAPH. Otherwise, it'll all show up jammed together as it is above.
After you have organized your paper into paragraphs, you can work on wholeness of sentences. Then after that you can work on grammar and usage and spelling.
