As we celebrate Black History Month, we reflect on the contributions African Americans have made in so many different areas of society and the adversity the African American community is continually overcoming. Adversity is nothing new for model and actress Halle Berry.
Did you know that Halle Berry has hearing loss in one ear? That has not stopped her from pursuing her passion to become an actress and model! She is recognized as the first African American to win an Academy Award for best actress as well as the first African American to even be nominated for an Oscar for best actress. She’s also earned an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award for her performances.
Halle Berry has not let any obstacles she’s faced get in the way of the pursuit of her passions and dreams. Ms. Berry is a positive role model and reminds us that hearing loss should not preclude any career or personal goals from becoming a reality!
