Becca Simpson
British Sign Language Communication Support Assistant

Background Information

Having worked in customer service my whole working life, I have met all kinds of unique people, I have wanted to push myself to become a BSL interpreter. I have helped my mum and dad with majority of their appointments, and have now got a real taste of the career I want to be in.  I am passionate and focused and have shown this by working my way up to Assistant Manager within 2 years and only being 20 years old. 

 

How did you come to choose to work alongside the Deaf/Deafblind?

Both my parents are Deaf and watching them struggle with everyday things has made me want to become a BSL Communicator.
