"Growing up with the Cochlear implant meant that, even though I was profoundly deaf... It has allowed me to attend normal schools. It's allowed me to attend university. It's allowed me to pursue a career I chose."*¹

- Holly, Cochlear™ Nucleus® recipient

Holly holds a special place in Cochlear's history. In 1987, she became the first paediatric recipient of our first commercial Nucleus cochlear implant when she was four years old after losing her hearing due to meningitis.

Unrestricted by her hearing loss thanks to her Cochlear implant, Holly's lived life the way she wants: from attending mainstream schools and university to pursuing a career in law.
