I think that it is always a good idea to hold onto your dreams and try with all your heart. Heather Whitestone is one such lady who did just that. In 1995 Heather won that year's Miss America pageant! She is deaf in one ear and has 5% hearing in the other. In her biography Listen with My Heart, Heather describes her ability to dance by hearing the music with her heart. She is so very inspirational to anyone who has a dream. Don't be held back by anything. You can always try.
The link below is a video of the crowning moment for the young Heather Whitestone, a quick interview and then she dances. Heather Whitestone’s novel Listen with My Heart is a great read and I urge all of you to read it. Heather has inspired in me, after watching this video and reading her novel, I have learned that I am the only one who can set limits on what I can and cannot do.
