My Journey into the Hearing World

Mon, 19 Apr 2021 By Priya Jones

My name is Priya Jones. I was born in Calcutta, India. When my parents adopted me, I moved to the United States of America when I was seventeen months old. I have bilateral severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss, and I wear two cochlear implants (CIs) to help me hear and understand speech. I also have craniofacial syndrome, which for me, means a cleft lip and palate, a bifold nose, and partial vision impairment in one eye.
