I like waking up to the sound of barking dogs.
As a result of her untreated hearing loss, 17-year-old Levita Malimbika has never learned how to talk properly. She can only make herself understood through sign language. The hearing aids she was given in October 2014 now help her to communicate better and make her more consciously aware of her surroundings. When Levita has finished school, she would like to work in a creative job and become an interior designer.
