Sharing a Secret About Hearing Loss with Amy Drucker

I’ve always been in awe of Amy Drucker. [http://amydrucker.com/ ] From first meeting her as grade-school kids to reconnecting on Facebook as adults, I’ve always felt a connection to her.

Most recently, Amy, a professional photographer in New York, wowed me with her bravery in sharing a very personal secret. It’s a secret that carries embarrassment and shame: experiencing hearing loss as a young woman. In this week’s episode, Amy discusses the surprising range of reactions she received after the big reveal, and the ways we can fight the stigma of hearing loss going forward.
