  1. I'm a lefty when I write but when I learned how to fingerspell somebody told me you had to do it with your right hand so that's how I learned the alphabet! So I'm a bit slower fingerspelling with my left but have switched over to using it because it's my dominant hand for the rest of ASL…it's weird because I want to switch back and forth for what feels more natural but my ASL teacher told me to choose one XD

  2. I don't really sign because i am(officially) hearing(you know the story). But the few signs i do know, i sign with my right hand.

  3. I sign with my left hand. If I really try and concentrate I can sign with my right but if I let my concentration go for even a second, I will default to left without even thinking about it. I can finger spell ambidextrously though which is interesting.

  4. I sign with my right hand. When I try to use my left hand it just feels totally wrong! I want to do this challenge now though!

  5. I am still learning asl… But I'm a right handed signer as I have a birth defect on my left hand. When I began signing I thought that would make it difficult for others to understand me… It has not. I love your signing and your story. I am hog but with out my bone anchored hearing aid I am essentially deaf.

    Much love from maine

  6. I've been finger-spelling (FS)/my main signing hand is with my right hand. I also write with my right hand. I've been signing for about six or seven years.

  7. Hey Rikki!!, I sign left-handed and I also have a hard time understanding right-hand signers sometimes- as I get used to them its easier for sure! funny I write left and sign left, maybe its just you 😉 i kid, look forward to your stream later <3

  8. Thanks for doing it all in ASL! I had the captions on, but it helped me practice my ASL which is a bit rusty. I was surprised how much I could figure out without the captions 🙂

  9. I’m a lefty through and through and just now realized I have trouble signing my name with my right hand… since it’s reaaaally hard (ahem c-a-l-i, yup terribly difficult).

  10. My first ASL prof is a lefty so I read left handed signers better. I primarily sign right but I have a bad habit of signing one handed, and switching between both hands

  11. I'm a left handed signer, but I don't know enough ASL (or any other sign language) to use it to practice. Ironically, I am learning German. Ironically I'm also visually impaired and still want to learn ASL

  12. I'm right handed,(Although I open jars, walk my dog, with my left) and learning sign. I just tried w/ the ABC's lefty, and it felt weird. Especially the letter P!

  13. I’m left handed and I sign with my left hand. I’ve never seen a left hand signer, besides me, so I don’t know if I would be able to understand it but I can understand right hand signers
