I was reluctant to create a biography section as my aim was not to focus on chronological order of events - but rather, extract sections from my unfinished book to tell you about the different aspects of my life, especially from the viewpoint of a deaf person.

I want to share some of the most important parts of my life as seen through my eyes. I am who I am, and this is my attempt at sharing my experiences, so that you can see why determination, resilience and hope were the main attributes that contributed to the person I am today.
