Thanks for joining me! My name is Ashley. I am 23 years old and I was born with a sensorineural hearing loss. I have worn hearing aids since I was 3. Growing up, I struggled to accept my disability and feel good about myself because I felt like I was the only young person with a hearing loss. I wish that I had been able to connect with people who have the same hearing loss as I do, so that we could feel less alone.
I’ve created this blog so I can share the challenges I’ve faced, my triumphs, and my journey of self-growth that would not have been possible without my disability. However, this blog is not meant to be solely for people with a sensorineural hearing loss. Everyone goes through difficulties that teach them lessons in life, and I think we can all instill courage in each other from our experiences. I hope you enjoy reading and feel a little inspired!
