Smriti was diagnosed with hearing loss at an early age. However, due to a lack of awareness of implantable hearing solutions, she did not receive a CochlearTM implant until the age of four..
Her parents, along with the support of Hearing Health Professionals strived to ensure that she developed good speech and language. Understanding the importance of hearing with both ears and the benefits that the latest hearing technology can offer, Smriti got her second Cochlear implant at 10 years of age and continued to upgrade her sound processors over the years to stay updated with technology.
Recently, Smriti upgraded to the Nucleus® Kanso® 2 Sound Processors. While every leap in technology considerably improved her lifestyle, she credits her ability to comfortably converse, maintain a busy social and professional life and pursue hobbies without constraints to her Kanso 2 Sound Processors. Through her inspiring hearing journey, Smriti shares how enhanced hearing technology gives her the confidence to chase her dreams and has brought a positive transformation in her personality.
