Everyone doesn't understand the joy one feels when one gets to see the colorful world or hear different sounds for the first time. It's something we all take for granted and only understand its worth when we see someone being grateful for the gift of sight or hearing. In a beautiful video posted on Reddit by u/Starkf_, a child hears her voice for the first time and is astonished by this new experience in life.
The girl can be seen wearing a hearing aid and when the person sitting opposite her taps on their thighs, she feels overjoyed as she could hear the sound. She says, "Wooh!" And she is surprised to hear her own voice for the first time. She then starts making more sounds just to hear herself and her happiness holds no bounds. She then signs to the person recording the video, "Sing me a song! Three two one!"
The video has over 8.2k upvotes and 67 comments. It is captioned, "Hearing yourself for the first time."
