OSU-Tulsa student hooked on aviation - at first sound

Emma Keller

The first thing Emma Keller ever heard was an airplane engine.

After spending her first 18 months of life without the ability to hear, an operation opened up the world of sound. While leaving the hospital in her mother’s arms, she pointed excitedly as she heard an airplane flying overhead.

“Of course, I don’t really remember that, but my mom tells that story,” Keller says with a laugh.
