Hearing loss can feel isolating, but it’s important to remember that there are many people who are going though the same struggles and milestones with their hearing journey.
To share what it’s like to live with hearing loss and inspire others, Ashley has been sharing what life with hearing loss is like for her, weekly on the HearingLikeMe YouTube channel.
Ashley’s Hearing Loss Vlog

Despite her hearing challenges, Ashley strives to follow her passions. She plays soccer for the USA Women’s National Deaf Team, and she’s currently traveling the world in pursuit of adventure and perspective while also learning about the deaf and hard of hearing communities in various countries.
To help others do the same, Ashley has a regular hearing loss vlog. In her videos, she talks about her hearing loss fears, working and dating with hearing loss, and how to live a more confident life with hearing loss.
