The 12 Million: Naomi’s story

Naomi’s hearing loss was caused by a missing bone in her right ear which means she has reduced hearing in her right ear. She has worn a hearing aid since she was four. Worried about reactions from her peers, she tried to get by without her hearing aid for a brief period at university but went back to using it during her third year. Naomi spreads awareness of hearing loss on social media and hopes for new treatments for hearing loss and tinnitus in the future.
