Appreciation thread for Minneapolis ASL interpreter Nic Zapko

Apologies if this has been posted previously, but this woman is such a bright spot in all the turmoil going on in her city (and the rest of the country).

I first saw her on Saturday morning, watching the news, tears rolling down my face as I witnessed footage of my country in all it's agony. Then Tim Waltz' press conference started, and I was instantly riveted by Zapko's emotive signing. In mere seconds, I went from crying to laughing out loud. What a gem she is--and she totally steals the show with her "gun fingers" and facial expressions. I've seen her several times since, including today's announcement of the three other officers being charged as accessories to George Floyd's murder. Thank you, Nic Zapko, for your amazing and important work, (and for bringing us all a much-needed smile in these dark times).


Side note, she and her wife Lisa were among the 42 first same-sex wedding ceremonies held on, Aug. 1, 2013 in the Minneapolis City Hall!
