Masha's Signs

Rolando Sepulveda

After taking a trip abroad to teach English, Masha experienced many issues with her voice that resulted in an operation that required the removal of a vocal polyp. This, on top of her speech impediment, made it very difficult to communicate. She sometimes found herself pretending to be mute to keep herself from being asked to speak up, often writing her thoughts on a small white board. As a playful joke, her boyfriend made her signs with different phrases that currently hang on her wall as decoration.
