Heather Whitestone is my favorite person from deaf history simply because she really did prove, just like Beethoven, that a deaf person can in fact pull things off easily if given a chance.
For instance, according to doctors, I have been hearing impaired since the day I was born. Because of this, my band-director from high school says I am a waste of talent because I can play guitar, trumpet, and sing, but yet I am currently going to college for a degree in drafting.
But it still falls with the fact that regardless of your gender or race, as long as you believe in what you do on a regular basis, hearing impaired to completely deaf in both ears or not, you can and will be successful in life and I can promise you that.
I may not have the best life style but I get around. Heather Whitestone may have started in poverty before she had a chance to become Miss America but she still did it, right?
Another example is Beethoven. He couldn’t hear at all yet he wrote many of the Symphonies that we know today in the musical world.
