I am very appreciative that I was able to go to the CHHA Youth Forum. It was definitely one of the highlights in my life. I learned each person has their own experience with their hearing loss journey, their education and life situation. I acquired knowledge about the guest speakers, how they adapted to their hearing loss in a work environment and what their main goals are in life. Their experiences made me learn so much and I gained in understanding what their hearing loss means to them. I will never forget and I cherish the moments. I met the most marvelous people ever. Be thankful for who you are now and keep moving forward in your career.
