My name is Bailey Wesolowski, I'm 17 yrs old and I have hearing loss. I'm a Junior at Lake Central High School in St. John, IN. Summer of 2021, I had Cochlear Implant Surgery on my Right ear. We found out about my hearing loss when I was 5 yrs old.I wore hearing aids in both ears until my cochlear surgery. After a few months with my cochlear, I realized that I could go without my left hearing aid. My desire is to go to college and become an Audiologist. So I can help kids like me. I'm running my 3rd year for Lake Central's Cross Country team. I’m still dancing and loving every minute of it.
I don't let my hearing loss get me down, I have too much fun stuff to do.
So I would love for you to join my team, but if you can't would you please consider donating a few dollars.
