ASL Video Transcript: The video starts with a fading effect and then the narrator signs in Korean Sign Language (KSL), "Hello! I am Nha Kim. I was born in Seoul, the capital of South Korea. My parents are both Deaf. We moved about one or two years later to America [Nha, transitions from KSL to ASL, signing AMERICA in ASL to show my ASL acquisition, which became my primary language]. Grew up in California, where my home base now nestles. After I graduated high school (at California School for the Deaf in Fremont), I attended Gallaudet University (in Washington, DC). After finishing my bachelor’s degree in Communication studies, I decided to pursue the Master's degree in Sign Language Education program, also at Gallaudet University. Now, how and where did I discover my passion in the sign language field? Various work experiences included numerous ASL teaching, which I did not realize all along until I have recognized that that is my passion! My sign language goals included teaching and engagement with anyone in diverse groups including children, parents, community, and adults, with no preference as I desire for a new experience. I hope to have an opportunity to teach and engage using either ASL and/or KSL." The narrator concludes with a smile. The video fades to black.
