    [Section_Value3] => <p>Hey hi hello! I'm Aly Edwards, a junior from Evansville, Indiana. I'm studying Advertising at WKU, with minors in Graphic Design and, of course, ASL. I've loved American Sign Language since I was little, when my mom taught me a few basic signs. I'm so grateful for this program to help me pursue it! If you ever want someone to help practice signing, I'm there. Also, I'm the proud owner of the best dog ever, Charlie. I will absolutely show you pictures of him if you ask (and probably also if you don't).</p>
<p>Fun fact about me: I have congenital anosmia, which means I can't smell.</p>

    [Section_Value3] => <p>Hey everyone! My name is Brooke and I am super excited to be your Peer Mentor this semester. I can't wait to meet everyone and get this semester going. I am a sophomore with a major in Health Sciences, a concentration in Pre-Physician Assistant studies, and a minor in ASL. This is my first year being a Peer Mentor but my second year in the ASLS program. I originally took ASL to fulfill my language requirement (which you don't have to worry about anymore) but quickly fell in love with the language and culture. After realizing what a beautiful language ASL is and how great the Deaf Culture is, I decided to pick up a minor in ASL. I cannot wait to help you guys learn more about ASL and Deaf Culture. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime through text, phone calls, or email.</p>

    [Section_Value3] => <p>Hey guys! My name is Meghan Rice and I'm from Manchester, KY. I'm majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in ASL. I started off taking ASL because I thought it would be interesting to learn, it filled my language requirement, and it didn't show off my accent, but within a few weeks I knew that I wanted to dive deeper into the beautiful culture! I can't wait to meet everyone of you all and if you need any help with anything, let me know!</p>

Peer Mentors


Let Us Introduce Ourselves

We are the people you see in class, but you might not necessarily know who we are or why we are in there. We are not classmates or instructors, but we are your peer mentors -- and we are here to help! Our roles are quite diverse, ranging from being a prop in class for the instructor, to scheduling review sessions for tests. We are here for your benefit and want you to feel comfortable coming to us for advice or help. Most of us have been where you are at some point in our signing careers and want to share with you our passion for ASL. So, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or just want some advice. We are here for you, and have provided little bios below to help you get to know us better!
