Sarah Churman hearing for the first time

Sarah Churman, 29, was born deaf. Until recently, she had never heard the sound of her own voice. But thanks to a hearing implant, Churman was able to experience a miracle.

She says on her YouTube channel that she's gotten by on reading lips and feeling vibrations.

The device she's received is not a hearing aid. It's implanted in the middle ear and picks up sound through the ear canal, minimizing background noise and acoustic feedback, according to Envoy Medical.

Watch the powerful video below, in which Churman hears herself speaking for the first time.
