Nets Kids Dancer Defies Odds Despite Hearing Loss

I had the privilege of meeting the inspiring Vako Gvelesiani and his family this summer in New Jersey at Oticon's "Focus on People" Awards. Vako won the award in the category of "Student". His mother sent me the link to Monday's (Dec. 28, 2014) issue of "Today's News" which covers Vako's story of dance. This young man has a bright future and I think we'll be watching Vako shine for a long, long time!
