ASL sign for “I love you” on Valentine’s Day

Please share this awesome video to your hearing loved ones who in turn can share with others all over the world.

Many deaf and hard of hearing people over the world always use the words “I love you” in sign language. There are also 10% of hearing people that can do it was well.

In fact, 90% of the population don’t know sign language. But it’s worth to try, isn’t it?

Where: Vancouver


Deaf community got complained about Nelson Mandela ‘fake’ interpreter beside Pres. Obama in South Africa. We decide to put Deaf community in a happy place to watch this video after an adorable girl singing Christmas songs by using sign language for her deaf parents. Watch YouTube video – KODA in Kindergarten Holiday Concert

We hope that more people will be willing to learn sign language to join the deaf community. We will definitely love that! It would be fun! If you talk to someone through a window, they can’t hear. Use sign language. Is it a good idea?


My closest friend, Carlo and I planned to take videos of more people. At first, we awkwardly approached the first person who accepted our request. It went better than we thought. We also asked other friends for assisting us to get more people. Some rejected and some accepted. It was such a roller coaster. And, our goal was to get 500 people.

Unfortunately, we didn’t reach 500. It is only 175 we got since some of us had work and got sick. However, after posting YouTube video on Facebook, we can see that everyone actually loves it!

I would love to thank to the people who participated in the video.

Special thanks for the kind assistance:

Calligraphy

My sister bought calligraphy pens for the beginners. I used it for the first time in my entire life. I have calligraphy marker, yet it has bad quality.

I kept a lot of nibs my sister gave me when I was young in the Philippines. I wish I could learn earlier than this year.

One problem, my left hand is hard for me to use the pen because of nibs and the positions that are different to right handed positions. I usually use pencil or pigment pens since I grew up. I will take more time to practice on writing in calligraphy.

I was done printing. I am going to take photographs of this handbook for my portfolio. The handbook is about communication access for Deaf, Deaf-Blind and Hard of Hearing employees. It teaches the staffs about how they can communicate with them. No barriers!
