From the age of three years, Susanna wore hearing aids and was raised in a hearing world. Because of her hearing loss, she had many challenges in her life - the utmost being speech and communication difficulties; however, these challenges did not stop her from believing in her dreams and becoming a success in her chosen profession or her favorite pastime!
For most of her lifetime, Susanna was in denial about her hearing loss and refused to be seen as being "different" from others. However, after receiving her cochlear implants, her attitude changed. She did not like the way the subject of hearing loss was portrayed by the media. She decided to give hope to others by sharing her story.
