Wow, I’m really excited that MTV will be doing this to show to the world about deafness. I will highly recommend to change the subject of Quiet Campus. Believe me, you will be very surprised how loud we are. I went to deaf school and graduated there, it is not quiet as public school. I also would like to point out to try not to use hearing impaired, becasue we, deaf people, really hate that word. Deafness is not a disability. We can do anything but hear! You will be amazing how far we could go, proving a lot of hearing people wrong.
Laura was lucky; her health care trust took an autonomous decision in 2003 to sanction implants for adults who’d been deaf since birth. Within six months Laura could hear the whirr of her computer and conduct a conversation with Owen from opposite ends of the house. She could hear — rather than just feel – the engine of her car and spent time standing in her shower in the morning (even though you’re not meant to get the cochlear microphone wet) listening to the sound of the water. She was also horrified to discover the noises people made in public toilets. “Oh my God!” she said to her mother. “Do people hear this all the time?!”
