UX Design Student @ Lambda School

American Sign Language Design

My name is Jibril Jaha. I was born deaf. I went to an oral deaf school. There, I’ve spent years doing speech therapy and hearing tests.Then, I went to college at RIT home of NTID where all Deaf and hard of hearing attended. I graduated with multidisciplinary study concentrating biotechnology, innovation management and minor deaf studies. In 2010, I started my journey in studying how Deaf technology makes an impact in our society since 2010. Accessibility was one of the pain points of my life as a deaf person. I was passionate about bridging accessibility for the Deaf with modern technology. Now I am a UX design student at an online immersive computer science program, lambda school. There I get the tools, resources and network to expand my potential as a User Experience Designer related to Deaf accessibility.
