Sarah Churman had been born deaf and had relied on hearing aids all her life. She finally got Esteem implant embedded in her ear and her husband shot the video as it was turned on. Writing on her YouTube channel, Sarah said that even though she used hearing aids, she had to rely on her lip reading skills.

"I had an implant put in 8 weeks ago called The Esteem Implant by Envoy Medical. I was born deaf and have worn hearing aids from the age of 2, but hearing aids only help so much. I have gotten by this long in life by reading lips. This was taken as they were activating the implant", she wrote.
