Elvis Magugu is a real animal lover. Dogs and cats are his favorites – and there are quite a few of these in his neighborhood. 16-year-old Elvis lost his hearing in early childhood as a result of meningitis. Since he was given hearing aids in October 2014, he has loved being able to listen to his four-legged friends barking and meowing. His dream job is to be a journalist.
