The sign for "proud or pride" uses a modified "A" hand. (The thumb is
sticking out.) The hand doesn't have to make contact with the chest. It is
okay to do the sign either way.
Memory aid: A way to remember this sign is to imagine a farmer looking over
his crop with pride and running his thumb up one of his suspenders.
YOU PROUD ABOUT WHAT? (What do you take pride in?)
Note: You can drop the sign "ABOUT" in the above sentence = "YOU PROUD WHAT"
which could mean, "What are you proud of?"
