Welcome to my blog!
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!
I’m a ‘Phonak hEARo’ and Brand Ambassador for Phonak’s Hearing Like Me Community Blog. I’ve been writing for them since 2015.
I am a Marketing Executive for a Health Club and Spa company. I also work in Events and Promotions for a newspaper publishing company. Whenever I get a free moment, I write blogs! You can view my LinkedIn profile here.
I have achieved many great things in my life, like being an Olympic Torchbearer for London 2012, 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 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!
