Sophie loves shining a spotlight on amazing kids with hearing loss around the world. Kalie’s teacher wanted to share her story with us. To shine a spotlight on someone you know, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Kalie is 11-years-old, has bilateral cochlear implants, and loves all things science. She is an animal lover, especially dogs, horses, and even dinosaurs! Kalie reads dinosaur books and memorizes facts about different types of dinosaurs. She even enjoys drawing them. Together with her younger sisters, Alexa and Zoey, Kalie loves to go to the zoo to see the animals.
Kalie’s favorite place in the world is the beach. She likes to look for ‘cute little crabs.’ She says, “Sometimes I am afraid crabs will pinch my fingers, but I still like to pick them up!” Kalie’s favorite sounds are the ocean waves and seagulls at the beach. One day, she hopes to go in a submarine and explore the deep ocean. When she grows up, Kalie wants to become a scientist and explorer.
