This 2005 edition of "Believing... Achieving" showcases 32 individuals from across the nation who are deaf and hard of hearing. These featured success stories show readers a glimpse into the lives of a group of individuals who are inspiring, full of hope, and determined to succeed. These are people from a variety of backgrounds, talents and interests as well as from diverse cultures, but all have a common outlook. Each one has continued to pursue a goal. Each one has faced difficult obstacles and barriers. Each one has continued in spite of failures and defeats. And in continuing, each one has succeeded. The editors hope the stories included in this book will encourage other individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, in their personal lives as well as their professional lives, to believe and to achieve.
