Hi Jamie
  How are you?   I started to learn braille after I got a job with public high 
school to work with a braille student.After sometime  working with her,I 
thought if I know braille I can make more connections with  her . So  I 
registered with Hadley (many thanks to the vision teacher who gave me the 
information) and I finished grade 1.  Grade 1 is very easy.Now I am doing 
grade2.   If I have any questions I ask my student /vision teacher and they 
help me. This makes me learn it quickly. Also the support I get from Hadley is 
great.Later I got an opportunity to transcribe math and so slowly I started 
picking that.  Now I love the braille medium so much that I want to learn more. 
Also I am a homebird and I do all this at home. I started to learn braille 
about a year and a half back.  
  Before moving to this place,   I was working as a volunteer for braille 
college students as scribe and reader.I am always interested in working for 
them. I also work as a volunteer for  charity organisations in  india. I work 
on projects for school and college students.The theme of the projects are to 
motivate them specially girls to attend school and college and provide 
   Recently I came to know of Bookshare through the student whom I work  
here.Now I work for bookshare.Each connection I make ,leads to another one.I am 
happy to know about the bookshare commnunity. 
  thanks for your time. devi

  Devi what a wonderful thing you do for others. When I
was trying to find someone to take my letter and put
it in Braille for my friend during a very trying time
in her life I emailed dozens of people on the internet
and only two answered and only one told me that she
would transcribe my letters to Braille and send them
to my friend. That was before I decided to try to
learn Braille and before she had email access again.
