President: Rayven-Acosta Webb

ASL Club President Rayven-Acosta Webb

Hello my name is Rayven Acosta-Webb and I’m the ASL Club’s President! I’m also a continuing student here at Bakersfield College majoring in Engineering Tech and I've taken ASL 1-4.

When I joined BC’s ASL program I didn’t anticipate how much I would enjoy the language and gain in experience; I’ve become more informed, involved and most importantly proactive. Being a part of the ASL Club and the ASL program I’ve developed a set of skills that allow me to be more successful in reaching my future goals.

I hope to help keep the ASL Club here at Bakersfield College thriving with the help of both the deaf and hearing communities.

Hello! My name is Emily Loewen and I am proud to be a BC student and an American Sign Language major!

I started my journey with Bakersfield College about a year ago. I have enjoyed learning many different subjects and gaining new friendships. American Sign Language has also been interesting to me, I love the depth of the language and the amazing culture the Deaf community has. I am so excited to continue learning and grow in my time at Bakersfield College and hope you do too!
