Hearing Herself for the First Time

(YouTube link)

YouTube member sloanchurman was born deaf. Now 29 years old, her husband recorded the moment her hearing implant is activated. She explained in the YouTube comments:

"I had an implant put in 8 weeks ago called The Esteem Implant by Envoy Medical. I was born deaf and have worn hearing aids from the age of 2, but hearing aids only help so much. I have gotten by this long in life by reading lips. This was taken as they were activating the implant."

I don't believe that girl was born deaf. Her speaking voice is that of a hearing person, from some time. Deaf people from birth have a very different speaking voice. Still cool.
