Hallo everyone, I'm so ecstatic that I joined this site!! :giggle: My name is Kelly, and I live in South Carolina! I use Advanced Bionics, and I was born profoundly deaf, so I use a Cochlear Implant to hear, which I got the surgery for at the age of 3, so I'm very lucky with the timing! [=
I'm 16, and I'm a junior in my high-school. I used to play Volleyball, but now I skateboard and draw in my spare time more than anything.
I hope I can get used to this site, since there's only 2 other people here in my town that are deaf as well. :dunno: Maybe i'll find someone else who has a cochlear implant too! Fingers crossed!
:fingersx:

The light blue type was a little hard for me to read. I wanted to say welcome and good luck on this site. I am in the decision process about getting a CI. I am late deafend and pretty afraid to have another surgery. I will find out tomorrow if I am a candidate and will go from there. Wish you all the best.

Ahhh. I changed it. It was really radio-actively bright. >.<
Out of curiosity, do you already have hearing aids, or do you sign?
Wish you the best with the results! :dance2:

Welcome ItsK3115. Several teenagers here have CI, so you should find friends. Baseballboy and CoolGirlSpyer come to mind. :wave:

I can not wear HA because I have no hearing remaining. Since this was a traumatic hearing loss I was not prepared with knowing ASL. I have learned some ASL but my main communication is pen and paper. Thank you for asking. Once again welcome and good luck:wave:

If you have the opperunity to attend a deaf school or a deaf camp....TAKE IT! It is SO worth it, and blows the mainstream out of the water!

I found this site b/c my special education teacher told me about it....
she rocks! xD

Yeah, I don't play Volleyball anymore. I had drama with my team, and they didn't like me too much, for some reason. =[ I was a Setter, which was fun, but I LOVED being a Labaro! I love digging for passes!

Yeah, I have alot of guy friends, but not too many gal friends. :/ They're less catty, you know? I love skateboarding, and I try to skate every day after school. [= Do you skate..? Any sports..?

Awesome, glad the special education teacher told you about it. So you would learn so much each of us ..

Oh I used to play volleyball back in my time, but i was such a short girl so i was MB libero. My friends who were in front of nets are tall than I am and they liked it when i gave the ball to them so they can hit and kill them. LOL During my gallaudet year, I was a volleyball team manager for '92. it was awesome.
I don't do skateboard and im too old for it. LOL.

by the way welcome to AD. :)
