The chosen submission for the Autumn 2018 Issue is Kevin!
I was born deaf and I grew up never truly enjoying TV or music despite wearing hearing aids. When it became clear that my hearing aids were starting to fail me and my hearing became steadily worse I got a cochlear implant and not only did it save my hearing but it opened me up to a new world of sound. I began to hear people without having to lip-read, I could hear the different background noises instead of static or nothing and best of all I discovered the absolute pleasure and power of music for which I am forever grateful for.Kevin, Nucleus recipient
