Video Description:

An Asian man with short dark hair, sits wearing a black long sleeve button up, dark framed glasses, and dark studded earrings. He is using ASL.


Barriers. Really, I would say exposure is a barrier. I feel like not many people of color know that interpreting is a profession. When I was acquiring sign language, I had no idea I could become an interpreter. Most people told me I could become a doctor or a lawyer or a scientist. But interpreting simply never once occurred to me.

Video Description:

Travis fades out and a teal circle opens up into a white circle with teal outline and text that reads “Attitude and Biases: APAHM”

NDC Logo appears above text, black lettering on a white background:

However, the contents do not necessarily represent the positions or policies of the federal government.”

Next to it, three logos appear. The first reads “IDEAs that Work” with an arrow drawing a circle from “IDEAs” to “Work” and the words “U.S. Office of Special Education Programs”. The second logo shows a red-and-blue star with text next to it that reads “TA&D”. The third logo shows a blue circle around a tree. In the blue circle are the words “U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.”
