Okay, so some of you might not know, but I will be flying to Denmark this August for an amazing leadership program called Frontrunners. I recently saw this Buzzfeed article, and yeah, I’ll probably be ruined seeing I’m going to be there for nine months. BUT I’M SO EXCITED FOR IT.
The article below perfectly sums up what every person who knows sign language has experienced at least once. The fact that so many people are clueless about a multitude of sign languages existing in the world. I mean, did you really think there was only one international sign language while there are so many different spoken languages? Sign language developed the exact same way spoken language did, separately. There are even regional signs, especially here in the US because it’s a big place.
Great documentary about three people finding their Deaf identity! I can never emphasize how important it is for Deaf children to have language at a young age, and usually the best option is some form of sign language. I am still dumbfounded by how many people do not understand that more often than not, speech/spoken language is not the best avenue for those who have lost their hearing (hello, unable to hear what’s being said?). I could go on and on, but I won’t. Go watch the video! Perhaps I should make a YouTube video of my thoughts… Hmm…

Hello! I decided to set up this website because I have several social media accounts, and not everyone knows of them/follows them so I thought I’d make this an one-stop for everything Rogan Shannon. I will try my best to be good about updating this website as I post new stuff, but we shall see! I do intend to use this often during my time in Europe, so this will be a good place for those who want to follow my travels there.
