Hello! My name is Jui Brahmapurikar and I am a 19 year old undergraduate student at UC Santa Cruz. I was diagnosed with severe hearing loss in my left year and profound hearing loss in my right ear at the age of two. Since then I wear a hearing aid on my left ear and seven years ago received surgery to have a cochlear implant on my right ear. In 2012 I had the amazing opportunity to be selected to participate in a leadership program for deaf teens (LOFT) by A.G Bell in Scottsdale, Arizona. The experience provided me with an incredible experience in meeting with other deaf teens who shared similar challenges in navigating the hearing world. The program allowed me to build strong leadership skills and challenged me to seize any opportunities that come my way and to live life without regrets. Now this year I have been selected to become an ambassador of NoBarriersUSA organisation to travel to Peru in August. I will not only have the opportunity to connect to deaf students throughout the US but across the world to deaf students in Peru. As you are aware, college is an expensive necessity to education and all the money that I do have is going towards it. I need you to help me raise the money to get to Peru and exchange life experiences across two cultures. Should you help me, you are enabling me to pay it forward in multitudes. Thank you for investing in the lives of deaf students!
