Deaf lady hears for first time thanks to implant

Imagine being born deaf. Imagine never having heard anything before.

And then you can hear again.

Thanks to new technologies it is possible to bring hearing back to deaf people.

I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time 🙂

Sometimes people ask. If you had to choose between being unable to hear or see, what would you choose? It is almost unimaginable if you are used to having your senses. And so easily taken for granted.

Watching this video, it makes me appreciate having sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. And thankful and happy for others when this is made possible through technological advances.
