CHHA Scholarship Winner
Alison Graham is a 24-year old student at George Brown College in Toronto. Ms. Graham, from Strathroy, Ontario, was selected from among 60 scholarship applicants and has lived with a hearing loss since the age of four. To quote Alison: « To say growing up with a hearing loss has been uncomplicated would be false, but the blessings it has brought, the lessons I’ve learned, all the things I have accomplished, and my ability to empathize — I would trade it for nothing! My hearing loss has definitely shaped me in becoming what I am. » Her immediate goal is to become a hearing instrument specialist and her long-term sight is set on a Masters degree in Audiology.
