Valerie is deaf, she has a hearing implant and she is learning to hear again
I'm from Pontiac Michigan, I was born and raised here. I attended all the public schools. While in high school I attended State College of Beauty. I graduated from High School first in January 8th 1977 and May 1977 I graduated from Beauty College. I worked in a barber shop for 3 years. I opened up my own beauty salon! I worked for 29 years here. Then suddenly, I woke up deaf! 8 years after being deaf I received a hearing implant and now I am learning to hear all over again.
A transformer fell in the area that cause a power snag to my electrical box, that went to the circuit breaker that caused an electric fire in the house. I was awakened by the smell of something burning. Then I saw my smoke alarm going off. I could not see anything and headed to the doors. The smoke was so thick it was terrifying. I had to feel for my hearing device while I was escaping.
Just to move on and count my blessings! Go ahead to a peaceful living community, not having to worry about keeping up a house. I had thought about joining a senior community center to be more active and move around more.
Seeing my grandkids, seeing them happy makes me happy. Seeing my family come together. I love to bake, baking things and sharing.
I'm raising money for security deposit so I can find safe housing.
