Yesterday, we wrote about how beautiful, and talented Treshelle Edmond was selected to represent NAD and PepsiCo to translate the National Anthem and “America the Beautiful” in ASL at the upcoming Super Bowl XLIX (49) on February 1st, 2015. We decided to contact her via Twitter and ask her what her thoughts are about being selected:
Below are some members of the Deaf Community who have congratulated her!
