Senior music education major Sam Rivera was 3 years old when his mother discovered he had a hearing problem. While he was taking a nap, his mother was in another room asking him to grab a clean towel. Rivera did not hear a single sound. After a trip to an ear, nose, and throat specialist at a children’s hospital in Washington D.C., Rivera and his family learned he had no hearing in his right ear. His other ear currently has approximately 79 percent hearing.
