I wasn’t allowed to go to college but I had learned #AmericanSignLanguage (ASL) with my missionary family when I was 17 & started working as an interpreter at 19 in NYS. I was DESPERATE to learn but was only allowed to read the JW Bible & literature.

When Cpt Hall starting signing, social media exploded with deaf people seeing fluency in her signs and wondering, as @NeilMcD did with his CODA son, if she was also a CODA. And she is! CODAs may grow up with a national sign language as one of their family languages @codaintl /2
Cpt Hall seemed to decide on her own to use #ASL (remember, sign languages are not universal- they are as distinct as spoken languages. The @WFDeaf_org estimates 200+ signed languages around the world. And only 50+ have been legally recognized. wfdeaf.org/news/the-legal… /3
