Who is KalGhani?

   

Who is KalGhani?

KalGhani is a very unique brand ! The name actually came about from brainstorming with one of my bestfriends,Shelita aka Lita, on many fun names that started with "K". I actually really wanted my brand to be named "Kali" and then lita said,"oouuu what about KALGHANI"... As soon as she said the name I knew that was ITTTT (HUGE shoutout to her).. From swimwear to Sign Language, KalGhani was made from the love and passion for art! In addition to designing swimwear, I  have a B.A in Deaf studies. I am mostly known for doing insane,eye dropping,cool,hip and creative Sign Language videos via IG @KalGhani. This made me come up with the idea to make a app where I can share my knowledge and love for ASL in a fun way. Hope you all enjoy my app.. IM REALLLLLLLY EXCITED for you to learn !!!!! PHOTO BY: @PHOTOSBYDARRI

" right or left hand for signing ? "

   

" right or left hand for signing ? "

You should always use your dominant hand when signing ! Unless the signs requires two hands then it is acceptable to use both hands ( of course ) but other than that ALWAYS USE YOUR DOMINANT HAND:)
side note;
if you're ambidextrous then pick a dominant hand !
yay let's sign

Some facts about Deaf Culture

   

Some facts about Deaf Culture

-"Hearing people often think of deafness as simply "an inability to hear." Being Deaf, though, is about more than just whether or not a person can hear-it's about being part of a community with its own history, values, and culture. Let's take a look at some of the more surprising facts about Deaf culture and how it differs from hearing culture."-Deaf Culture is not universalWhile American Sign Language is used in the United States and Canada, most countries have their own distinct sign languages. Just as American Sign Language is unrelated to spoken English, the sign languages of other countries have their own unique histories separate from the origins and histories of their countries' respective spoken languages. -Look at Face not hands, when communicating If you watch Deaf people sign, you'll notice that they look at each other's faces, not hands, when communicating. People who are learning to sign often fixate on the signer's hands, which looks unnatural and can hinder effective communication. This is because facial expressions are just as important for communication in sign language as using the hands and can have a huge impact on the meaning that is being conveyed.-Getting someones attention To get someone's attention, Deaf people might tap someone on the shoulder. Or, they might bang or tap on a table so that the vibrations cause everyone at the table to look toward the source of the vibrations. In a large group or classroom setting, flashing the lights off and on is a common way to get everyone's attention. It's rude to wave your hands right in front of a Deaf person's face to get their attention. Just gently tap them on the shoulder instead. It's ok to wave your hand, though, if you're too far away for a shoulder tap

Deaf vs deaf

   

Deaf vs deaf

Many of you might ask whats the BIG Deal about deaf vs Deaf!!! well here is what i learned in college..''Generally, the "small d" deaf do not associate with other members of the deaf community. They may strive to identify themselves with hearing people, regard their hearing loss solely in medical terms. ... In contrast, "Big D" Deaf people identify themselves as culturally deaf and have a strong deafidentity.''
