An American Teenager Discovers Islam: Islam Is Not a “Sunday-Feel-Good Affair.”
By: Valerie Wright
I could say that my journey to Islam began before I was even aware of it.
I was born with a progressive hearing loss.
My mother did not realize that I had difficulties hearing until I was 4 years old.
Once it was discovered, I received my first hearing aids, and began attending a school where hearing and deaf children were integrated.
At first I was placed in classes that contained only deaf children. Then I began to attend some classes with hearing children, and I had a teacher come to help me learn how to integrate. I felt at home there. I did not realize that I was being prepared to leave the school and go to a mainstream public school.
