Child’s Voice ’99 Graduate, Mitch Olsen, was recently featured in “Hearing our Way”, the only magazine for kids and teens with hearing loss.

Mitch is a graduate student in deaf education at the Program in Audiology and Communication Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. He has a profound hearing loss and wears bilateral cochlear implants.

In the February 12th publication, Mitch was asked a series of questions, including what is your dream career.  His answer made us so proud:  

“…Child’s Voice, a school for the deaf in Chicago, that gave me the tools to hear and to talk. Because of the huge impact the school had on my life, I’ve decided that I want to be a teacher of the deaf so that I can help children like me learn to listen and speak and give back to the community that did so much for me. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, I am now pursuing my Master’s of Science in Deaf Education (M.S.D.E.) at Washington University’s PACS program. I hope that I can be a role model for children with hearing loss so that they see it is possible to be a successful adult in spite of the challenges they face!

We continue to be so impressed with Mitch’s goals and accomplishments!
