    SINGAPORE — When the batteries of Talia Astapura’s cochlear implants went flat one day in class, the Frontier Primary student panicked.

    Born deaf, Talia - who was among the pupils who received their Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results on Friday (Nov 24) - found herself unable to hear anything her teachers or friends were saying.

    “I told my friends and they were shocked, but they took out my books to write notes for me. My teacher also panicked and went to buy batteries for me,” said Talia, 12, recounting the incident to show how those around her would go all out their way to ensure she does not face any difficulties in school despite her condition.

    Talia first got her cochlear implants at 10 months old, and had to undergo six years of auditory verbal therapy to train her to hear and speak clearly. When she was 4 years old, her therapist recommended her to attend music appreciation classes, in order to expose her to a wider range of frequencies. Since then, her love for the piano blossomed.

    I hope she can find job after studying so hard. This society is very harsh and practical. She may eventually woke up to the reality that PAP is just giving her false hope once she grew up to be an adult.
