The milestone of 10,000 members
I would like to personally share some exciting news. We have finally reached the milestone of 10,000 members in our online hearing loss community with DeafandHoH. I’ve had mild to moderate hearing loss all of my life, and have always felt like an outsider and as if I don’t have many friends. Those feelings were my inspiration for starting a hearing loss community.
Thank you to all of our past student interns who have contributed to make our hearing loss website a great place for the deaf and hard of hearing community. We have had many students from Ohio University, the University of Dayton, and other colleges over the years. Without your contribution and involvement, we would not have gotten as far as we are today.
Last summer, I unexpectedly lost my job for no reason and faced another road block in my life. I will continue to advocate for others who are treated unfairly and are isolated in the outside world. I will continue to share my stories, frustrations, and achievements. Lastly, I will continue to reach out to the stars and all my dreams will come true no matter what roadblocks I encounter again.
I am confident our community will expand to become bigger than ever. The more we have, the stronger we are. Just remember, you’re not alone in this world.
I appreciate each and everyone in the hearing loss community, the friends who are still my friends today, and especially my parents who always been supportive and always there for me.
I love you all and thank you for reading.
