    I would like to say that I have met a few Deaf People and I love being around them, they give me a different look on the world. I pray that God allows me to one day find a friend that is Deaf and that we can enjoy each other in this world… I’m going to school to become an “Interpreter” and I hope to be a help one day? Amen…

    Hello! This message is for Billy Koch and anyone else interested/knowledgeable about web accessibility. I read here in the “about” Billy Koch that Billy does web development work on the side and has over 14 years of IT experience.

    I’m submitting the link to our introduction/welcome page. You can see me in the ASL vlog. I’m hoping Billy will contact me directly!

    I am the Assistant Accessibility Editor here at the University of Texas at Austin and also work for the National Association of the Deaf as their Ambassador from 2010-2012.

    Thanks for your time!

    all best,
    Rachel Mazique
