About Me

My younger daughter Reha was diagnosed with a hearing loss late at 20 months. We worked hard to get her the best access and therapy to integrate her into a mainstream school. I believe that a parent has the power to change the future of their child and the key to this power is in acceptance and hard work.

Mentor Information

My favorite thing about my AB Cochlear implant is
I love the aqua kit, the ease with which mapping sessions go. The battery options and the ROGER compatibility makes it all worthwhile for my child.
With my AB cochlear implant, I can
Take my daughter to the beach, pool, play holi or football and not worry about her not hearing. I love the freedom my child has from care of the devices even though she is wearing them at all times.
My favorite sound is
Reha loves playing and listening to music. *She also likes to have conversations in whisper*
I chose AB because
The high resistance to impact, the phonak compatibility, the t-mic and the aqua kit.
I am a BEA Mentor because
I don't think my journey is unique. I borrowed strength from strangers who shared their story and inspired me to work hard for my child. I would like to be in a position of passing this flame.
I can help cochlear implant candidates by
Sharing my experience and listening to yours. It is a shared journey and not many others can understand it. I can also share the research I have done from India and around the world on therapy options and on mainstreaming my child.
