Have you ever heard a ringing, humming, buzzing, or even cricket-like chirping in your ears? If so, you may have tinnitus.

When I saw the posting for summer jobs at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) on Indeed, I had never heard of CHS before. I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity as I have learned so much in eight weeks. The first few weeks I spent researching various issues relating to mental health in the Deaf community.
