Why do you have a ‘Pride in BSL’?: I’m proud of my language. Using BSL, as a deaf person while throughout my life enabled me to achieve a number of things. For example, I’ve become a professional wrestler, I’ve also achieved a degree at university and I have a job here at the BDA too. Having BSL is empowering it’s opened doors for me giving me the access I need to achieve anything I want. Brilliant!
