Hi I'm Ashley

I'm Deaf, I use my Hearing Aids to hear and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Senior in high school. I am Deaf, I have a full-time job interpreter at school to help me understand what the teachers are teaching. I also use my hearing aids to help me hear what is going on around me. I read lips as well. I play the piano and have been since I was 8 years old. I love to smile and help brighten someone's day! I know a lot of ASL (American Sign Language) and I speak both English, and ASL. I also love performing songs in ASL as well since I can't really sing.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the church is true, I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he restored our gospel. I truly love being a Mormon because its fun! I get to go to a lot of Mormon parties, I see a lot of my Mormon friends at school. I also love my Savior because he has given me the opportunity to be here on Earth. He's given me so many blessings and helped me to overcome my challenges in my everyday life. I always struggle to understand completely what someone is saying or asking me something and I feel ridiculous asking "What?" over and over again. He has helped me to overcome all these challenges I have had to face.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by following my church standards. I haven't been doing well with keeping up with the No Dating Until 16 standard...I've been making wrong choices. Now I've decided to follow my church standards as much as I possibly can. I sometimes perform some of the Mormon songs in ASL for my friends who don't know much about this church.
