Kim Auclair was born with severe to profound deafness in both ears. Today she is a leading entrepreneur, speaker, blogger, author, and radio host on CKRL 89.1. In 2019, Auclair decided to replace her hearing aid with a cochlear implant. As a result of her decision, Auclair became more in touch with the hearing community and incredibly committed to raise awareness on the communication challenges that deaf and hard of hearing people face. Her online platform, Ma Surdité, features a collection of cartoon drawings detailing her own experiences as a profoundly deaf woman.
