Blogs and Articles


As well as being passionate about Interpreting I have also developed a love for writing. Here are some of my published articles I have written and some articles where I have featured within.


This is an Article by Andy Palmer from Deaf news web-site Limping Chicken. It is about the situation I found myself in when my late father was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer. Obviously this was a very sad time for us as a family, made even harder as he was never provided with a BSL interpreter during his many visits to hospital. I believe this experience is the main main reason why I developed the ambition to become a BSL Interpreter.
