"I lost my job"
In 2016 Behnaz experienced a sudden drop in her hearing that led her to stop wearing her left hearing aid as it no longer made any difference. As a result of her hearing loss, Behnaz lost her job and confidence; she felt like a failure. Even with her degree behind her, she struggled in interviews because of her hearing. Behnaz isolated herself and felt like she had lived in a cocoon for months. She felt embarrassed having to get people to write down everything for her, “It took me many little steps to accept the new me!” said Behnaz.
Behnaz was implanted with her cochlear implant in 2021 and is amazed at how well she can hear with it. Her cochlear implant has given her confidence back and has improved her hearing health and mental health. She can listen to and participate in conversations, even on the phone, something she couldn’t do before.
After my cochlear implant, I got my confidence back.
Behnaz loves her cochlear implant and is very proud of it. She loves to wear it bold and bright, “It helped me get the chance to live my life to its fullest again. It is now my BFF. I cannot hide my best friend.” Says Behnaz.
Behnaz has a beautiful little three-year-old daughter, and now with her cochlear implant, she will hear all of her special moments.
