Ashley realizes the importance of strong communication skills, because she has to work twice as hard as other teens her age to understand the world around her. Ashley has a hearing impairment, which requires her to have a cochlear implant and use an interpreter with sign language during her high school classes. For Ashley to take a job in the community and overcome her disability is a credit to herself as well as her employer. In addition to her excellence on the job, Ashley continues to educate others about having a hearing impairment and teaches her peers sign language after school.
Congratulations to Ashley and Jordon!
