Yes, You Can, Heather Reviews
Very inspiring story about the first handicapped Miss America.
For someone who was born with a moderate hearing loss such as myself, this book was extremely inspirational. I felt like I was right there with Heather and her mom riding the emotional roller coaster. I think her shear determination and hard work outweighed her set backs and disappointments. I remember the night Heather Whitestone was crowned! I was blown away and totally amazed!!! I will never forget that moment. I saw her on The Celebrity Apprentice not so long ago and again I was amazed at her ease of communication. I just learned that she has four sons and lives on St. Simon's Island. I am so happy to find that she has lived such a wonderful life!
"The audiologist has found nothing new, but she did have one unexpected recommendation. Because Heather's best hearing sensitivity and speech perception came through her left earned she preferred listening through that ear to listening with both, the CID audiologist recommended the use of amplification in her left ear only.""I think the two girls became such good friends because Misha's continuing efforts to learn sign proved her commitment to their friendship. And in another way it affirmed and symbolized to Heather Misha's complete acceptance of her -- handicap and all."
This is a great book about perseverance, hard work, believing in oneself, having high aspirations/goals, and great accomplishment.It is a reminder that even if your goals scare you or freak you out because they are so lofty, you can still reach them. It is proof that a handicap is not a brick wall that keeps us from reaching our goals or a happy life.
It is indeed a very wonderful book, I have touch by her courage and inner beauty. It shall be an encouragement to all women who desire to succeed in life..... no just $$$ and status, but really succeed in being a real woman.
I read these in middle school. Being a young girl from Alabama, growing up we were fascinated with her! Everyone read these books!
This is the amazing true story of a young girl who became Miss America despite unbelievable challenges, due to her faith and help from her mother.
It is very sad but its a very good christian book it defaintly brougt me closer to god
