Episode 91: Be Yourself and Follow Your Dreams

Kellina shares how she became deaf at four years old and attended a deaf and hearing school. She discloses moments when a guidance counsellor and professor told her she couldn’t do what she wanted (which was to become a doctor). She went into the field of psychology to mentor those who have disabilities and those who don’t. She voices the importance of being yourself and following your dreams.
