Wow! I had a good time at the office on Tuesday! I was there with a co-worker and chatted with a woman knows ASL. Ms. Emmonds (Office of Personnel Management) interviewed me (with an interpreter) for the background investigation. It took about an hour for the interview. After lunch, a woman came to my office about the videophone; I’m excited about this because I can start to participate in meetings. She told me that my videophone didn’t get setup yet because they need to get the modem from Verizon. A co-worker came to my office and shows me what he doing on his job about different devices with firewall more security. I think him since showed what it looks like, I can to start working on a project with some co-workers. I had nothing to do today. I am still waiting for modem to arrive for setup videophone then can I join a meeting with group on calls. I just sit in my office all day and read the book. I feel concern because I feel like I did not learn anything today. I really would rather keep busy when I am here. Friday was interesting. My POC came to my office and asked me who the interpreter is last Tuesday? I explained the interpreter was for my background investigation and not relative to DHS. He explained he was trying to get an interpreter for meetings for me and I showed him the website and he was very impressed! Now he gave me a schedule of meetings and is making an appointment for an interpreter for me for all the meetings. I have to setup a request for the date and time and where the meeting is at. I asked him if all meetings are by phone conference or in the conference room. He explained that every Tuesday we will have staff meeting in the conference room. I explained I don’t need to make an appointment for interpreter with phone conference because I can use videophone for VRI (Video Remote Interpreting). He said, “I thought it just was only one-on-one?” I explained that yes, but can have more people than one-on-one in the videophone for meetings. He said “wow that’s awesome”! I am excited because now I can start to participate in the meetings next week for sure! I’m really excited about it; I can’t wait to participate and learn more at the meetings!
