Amanda Jewell lives in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne; she was born with a moderate to severe hearing loss and aided at approximately 8 years old. At the age of 19, due to peer pressure, Amanda ceased wearing her aids and struggled through her 20’s without them. She is now married with 3 young children. One of her children has a hearing loss and is not speaking very well, because of this 
Amanda was advised to get hearing aids so she could hear her daughter clearly and assist with her speech development. She was not financially able to purchase aids. 
Amanda is extremely happy with her hearing aids and now helps her young daughter with language development.
