Transcript:

Hello, my name is Aylah Cadwell, name sign, “Aylah.” I learned ASL for the first time when I was 9-10 years old. I grew up in a hearing family and I didn’t really have language access. Learning ASL changed my life. I have a personal deep understanding of how important language access is for everyone. That’s my motivation. I get a sense of satisfaction from knowing that I am doing my part to make the world a little bit more of an accessible place. That’s what I do here at DeafHealth. I want to empower you to make informed decisions about your health because you deserve that.
