Born in Des Moines, Iowa, Angela Lynn began her life with a silent struggle. At the age of six months, she contracted a cold that progressively became worse, accompanied by a very high fever. After multiple visits to her pediatrician and several hospital visits, her fever was brought under control, but left permanent damage resulting in sensorineural hearing loss.
Angela Lynn was an adventurous child that never considered her hearing loss a “disability.” To her it was a way of life, and she never let it stand in the way of whatever she dreamed up for herself and her future. Angela Lynn attended schools with students that were Deaf but she generally was mainstreamed with students who did not have a hearing loss. As a result of her willingness to embrace the unknown, she accepted an internship in Malaysia, teaching and empowering students. Angela Lynn is a globe-trotter, and some of her favorite international destinations are France, England, Europe, Egypt, Malaysia, Canada, Australia, and Singapore.
