It’s a brand new year, time to think about goals we want to accomplish and how we will succeed with our dreams. As a final part of our “Spreading Good Cheer” series, here are a few inspiring stories about people who didn’t let their hearing loss keep them from achieving their dreams.

Some think of hearing loss as a deficiency, but this family has found a way to create something exciting and new (or old, in fact) while giving back to their community:

Teens with Dreams

These two stories feature teens who have found ways to make their dreams come true with the help of Oticon’s “Focus on People Awards” which “aim to support ‘exceptional people with hearing loss’” and “change perceptions of what it means to have a hearing loss.”

However we choose to accomplish our dreams, it helps to know that something like hearing loss doesn’t have to become a barrier. Of course, the best way to keep hearing loss from slowing us down is to keep our hearing healthy with good nutrition, hearing protection, and regular checks and cleanings.
