Health on Earth, CKUT 90.3 FM, July 30th, 2013
Jack: My name is Jack Volpe, I'm Deaf. I'm 28 years old, and I like long walks on the beach. Haha, I'm kidding. I have two jobs. One as a préposé, sort of like a nurse's assistant, but at a special school, the Mackay Rehabilitation Centre for students with disabilities. The second job I work as an ASL teacher. ASL means American Sign Language.
