My friend has been learning sign language as part of her undergrad (her major is psychology). This is in her words: "My grandfather was hard of hearing and his parents actually refused to raise him [because of it], so I've always been interested in deaf advocacy. I also get frustrated with verbal communication when in an anxiety attack, so being able to communicate through it interested me. But I REALLY fell in love with it the second I started learning."
