About me

Hello everyone! I lost my hearing when I was 2 years old due to unknown reasons, but it possibly could be due to genetics, as we have had relatives that are Deaf or HoH in our family. I have had moderate to severe hearing in both of my ears, therefore I've had to wear hearing aids for the majority of my life. I've been brought up in mainstream schools, where I've felt like I've had to 'hide' being HoH, or not talk about it to 'fit in' (not saying mainstream schools are bad, but it can not be pleasant if the school community isn't exposed to people that have a disability). In the recent months to past year I've started to embrace being HoH more and its not something to hide but rather something to be proud of 🙂 

Thanks for listening,

Eleanor
