Latisha Porter-Vaughn chronicles her journey of hearing loss in the book, Sounds of the Heart: A Story of a HearStrong Champion Persisting Against All Odds.
She knows very well what it is to fall, as well as the fight and the trials to reach her triumph of today. Born with a hearing loss and the passing of her mother at 6 weeks old, many may have viewed it as a strike against her. Learning to live well with hearing loss was no easy feat, but she had a contender in her corner called "determination."
Hailing from Hamilton, Ohio, it wasn't until a 1986 infraction with the law that Latisha Porter-Vaughn began to see clearly. She picked herself up and packed a suitcase full of lessons and a mindset for change. After settling in New Jersey, Latisha's dreams began to be realized. Sounds of the Heart is the perfect blueprint to let all know — hearing loss or hearing — that you can overcome the opposition.
