Life After Deaf
 
I'm actually fifth generation deaf on my mother's side - my maternal grandfather was also deaf, as was my maternal great-grandfather. I was born hearing, and I started to lose it at the age of 5. I moved to Ohio when I was 6. When I arrived at the local schools, they advised my mother to put me into the Ohio School for the Deaf - fortunately, my mother is also deaf, and she felt strongly that I should be mainstreamed. I used hearing aids and lip-reading all the way through high school, and became the first student in my school district to attend Johns Hopkins University as an undergraduate.

April 29th, 2015 is International Noise Awareness Day. In celebration, please document any noisy part of your day by taking a short video or audio recording. It can be of anything, such as riding a subway car, a loud restaurant or concert, among other noises encountered on an everyday basis. Share it with us on Facebook and Twitter by using the hashtag #HearTheNoise.
 
 
I first received hearing aids when I was 15 but was teased for wearing them; I felt different and somehow less than my peers. As a result I didn't wear them for many years and struggled to find ways to cope without them.
