Steffi Stephan is a novice freelance American Sign Language interpreter currently living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. After graduating from NTID's interpreting program in 2015, she decided to pursue her career closer to her hometown (Rockland County, New York). As a way to be more involved in NYC's Deaf community, she thought a great way to start was to become D.E.A.F.'s person of contact in the Brooklyn area. She is looking forward to continuing her time with the D.E.A.F. team as their secretary. She continues aspiring her goal of being an advocate of the Deaf community with her work as an ASL interpreter and involvement with D.E.A.F. and she hopes these opportunities will help make her mark in NYC's Deaf community.
