By: Alex Thomas Farnworth, St John's a School For The Deaf, Year 14
My name is Alex am 18,
I was born hearing and became deaf (hard of hearing) when I was very young,
I always have a lot of hearing friends and some deaf friends of course,
I came to St John School when I was 9, but my old school I went before then I found it hard even though I had some friends there,
I been to different deaf clubs too,
I wonder how other deaf people feel about their deafness, but being deaf does not make u any different from hearing people cos u can still be great on who u r!
Being deaf doesn’t bother me anymore cos I am more confident and I know that I
got my family and friends who support me and I support then too!
