Hello!

My name is Erin and I was born with a bilateral genetic hearing loss. I received my first pair of hearing aids in fifth grade. Since then, I’ve become a hard
of hearing advocate, physical therapy student, and aspiring global citizen. I hope to share with the word that while growing up with a disability has many unique challenges, the stepping stones to maturity and adulthood of human nature remain the same. The question is how we choose to cope with our life obstacles – disabled or not –  and take control of making the most of what we have been given.

I love to read, write, travel, meet new people, and munch on dark chocolate. I also have an abnormal number of goals and aspirations. But if I had to narrow it down, the top two would be to become a health professional and publish a book.

I have quite an internet footprint so please feel free to get to know me at Google+. In the meantime, you can find out my latest Adventures (below are all my posts in chronological order) and learn about the World of Hearing.  Thanks for dropping by!
