From the time Erin Enguero was diagnosed with a bilateral
genetic hearing loss, she had learned how to transform her social
insecurities into positive energy which led to success in the
classroom and involvement in student activities. In spring 2011,
Erin shared her story with the Fremont Unified School Board and
was twice awarded the Sertoma Scholarship for the Deaf and Hard
of Hearing. Erin then successfully lobbied for support from the
Department of Rehabilitation for the proper assistive hearing device
to help her pursue a college education.
As a first year kinesiology major at San José State University, Erin
has been active in the departments activities and its five campus
clubs. She now serves as co-treasurer for the Pre-Physical Therapy
Club. Erin has a 4.0 GPA and is currently working at the SJSU
Student Health Center as a physical therapy aide to gain valuable
insight and experience for graduate school.
Erin looks forward to earning a doctorate in physical therapy. She
also hopes to write a book about her hearing impaired adventures.
