Soaring Beyond Silence

Posted by

This film is the story of a High School girl who realized that she had been born with a 40% hearing loss in both ears. Because her hearing loss wasn’t discovered until she was a Junior in High School, her “moments of incompetence” were often misunderstood. Reluctant and embarrased to admit her disability and to wear hearing aids, she faced many challenges. Through it all, she grew stronger. She made this film to let other people know that, even though the road to success is not easy and it may feel long and arduous, we all have a purpose. We all have strengths and we all have challenges, but it is up to us to decide what we are going to do about our challenges. This film shows her story of perseverance in hopes that others can also triumph in the face of adversity.

Directed by Jessie Greenberg (USA)
