As my journey as a Deaf person continues, I am proud of my culture and first language. Sign language is an abstract ideology or expression into the visual. To increase your thinking of how our native language is beautiful, valued, and positive. Each color represents a feeling of emotions through a sign language drawing.
Digital artwork showing a person in center with face, arms, and upper chest showing against a white background. The person has wavy blue hair with light blue lines and tiny stars speckled. The hair spreads upwards like a fire blaze. The person’s hands are signing the ASL sign for ‘inspire’ while colorful liquid erupts upwards from behind the hands in shades of pink, orange, teal and purple.
