"My dream is to be a commercial pilot ... I know it’s going to be filled with challenges along the way. But when I get there, it's going to show people that, yes he can do it with any sort of hearing impairment or disability."

- Jarrod M. - Nucleus® recipient

Jarrod pursues his dream

Talking to clients is a big part of Jarrod’s role as an IT engineer, where he works with schools and small businesses. In his work, people don’t like to repeat themselves, and clear communication is essential.

With the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor, Jarrod enjoys sound like he never has before. It means he can communicate well with others. Streaming calls directly from his smartphone gives him an advantage.

Not only can he hear well, he has grown in confidence as a result. Jarrod can now pursue his dream of becoming a commercial pilot, a wish he's had since he was two years old.
