About Me

Welcome to my blog!

DB Profile Pic 2

I’m E, also known as Deafie Blogger. I’m a profoundly deaf blogger and deaf activist. I’m passionate about deaf awareness and campaigning for deaf rights.

I love inspiring people of any age, with a hearing loss and to encourage them to not let it stand in the way of achieving their goals.

My motto is: ‘Deaf people can achieve anything they dream of, given the right support’.

My hearing loss

I have a bilateral sensorineural hearing loss and I’ve been deaf since birth. I wear Phonak Sky Q hearing aids and I communicate through speech and lip reading. I’m currently learning British Sign Language and I’ve passed my Level 1!

Blogging

I’m a ‘Phonak hEARo’ and writer Phonak’s Hearing Like Me Community Blog.

I also write blogs for British Deaf News.

Career

I am a Marketing Executive for a Health Club and Spa. When I get a free moment, I’m always writing blogs, campaigning and posting content on social media! You can view my LinkedIn profile here.

Achievements

I have achieved many great things, such as being an Olympic Torchbearer for London 2012 Games, completing a Tandem Skydive, visiting Parliament for Action on Hearing Loss, receiving a Highly Commended Award at the Royal Deaf Awards in 2016 and so much more.

This blog

This is a personal blog, which I started on 15th May 2015, as a place for me to express my thoughts, experiences and rants about deafness! I love to inspire and educate other people, sharing my experiences, giving advice and raising deaf awareness.

I hope to show that if you have a hearing loss, you’re not alone!
