Have you ever thought about learning Auslan and/or becoming an Auslan-English interpreter?
More people becoming fluent in Auslan would help Australians who are deaf/hard of hearing and use Auslan, so we are able to communicate with others in education, health, retail, and so many more during our every day lives.
There's also a severe shortage of Auslan interpreters around Australia, and we're desperate for more people to train to become interpreters!
