Despite spending the first three decades of her life in relative silence, Allyson Raphel’s strength and candor is tempered with a biting sense of humor. Not only is this her personal story of getting a cochlear implant, but her perspective on being deaf and the roller coaster transition to becoming what some in the deaf community call a “hearie." Silence, she learned, can be golden.
