“Opening Up” in the Hearing Loss Magazine

I am thrilled to announce that I will be on the cover feature of Hearing Loss Magazine’s November/December 2011.

I’ve always felt like an outsider due to my hearing loss.  So, one day in 2008, I decided to use my skills as a web designer to start a website where people with hearing loss could come together and form a community into which they fit.  A few months later, Cindy Dyer, who works as a photographer and designer for the Hearing Loss Magazine, found my blog and contacted me.  We’ve stayed in touch since, and last spring, she decided to feature my story on the cover of the November/December 2011 issue.  I flew to Washington D.C. this September and met Cindy in person for the photo shoot.  She and her husband were kind enough to show me around the D.C. area and graciously offered me a place to stay over the weekend.

Thanks to Cindy and the Hearing Loss Magazine, my dream of sharing my story with the world is finally coming true.  I hope my story will be an inspiration for people to pursue their dreams, regardless of whatever limitations they may have.  As Henry David Thoreau once said: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”

    Hello Senthil,

    I just finished reading your riveting, inspirational article in Hearing Loss Magazine. I am so impressed by what you have accomplished in your relatively young live, but sad that it has been such a battle!

    I, too, am hard of hearing; have been for about 35 years, and although I wear bi-lateral hearing aids, I struggle to hear because of persistent tinnitus. At 83, I am determined to make the best of my situation and am still able to sing in my church choir, which is a treat for me.

    Thanks again for your inspiring article and the very best to you.
