Ingenuity & Adversity, Finding Song Though Hearing Loss

Ingenuity & Adversity, Finding Song Though Hearing Loss

We are surrounded by noise. Both audible and visual. Billions of images and videos uploaded to the internet every day. It all becomes very grey.  

Very rarely in our mundane world do we come across people who are truly astounding. Using every avenue available to us as humans to explore, learn and grow. 

Meet Mandy Harvey a twenty nine year old Jazz singer from the USA. The thing that makes her special? She lost her hearing at the age of nine. 

Mandy is an example of what it is to be human, what it is to adapt and overcome adversity. Proof the human race can really do absolutely anything. 

By using her remaining senses, singing barefoot next to a speaker to feel the vibrations of the beats, using her sight and sense of feeling to learn to sing notes and remembering the sensation. Mandy learned to sing with pitch perfection. 

If ever you feel deflated, beaten and like the world just isn't turning on the same access you are. Remember you can overcome almost anything. You just need to look at it from another angle. 

How you walk in the skin you wear is your decision. Why not embrace it?
What other choice do you have?
