Celestyn was born profoundly deaf which has also affected his speech. Striving throughout his life to overcome his disability, he has worn hearing aids, has recently had cochlear implants and is undergoing speech therapy. His aspiration is to be able to hear and speak normally.
His passion for aviation started when his father took him flying in a light aircraft as a young boy. Once he was older he would practice flying aircraft using a flight simulator on his computer, before later going on to college to study Aviation Operations.
“I want to say thank you to FSDP for giving me a scholarship. I had a great summer learning to fly a microlight aircraft ! The experience I have gained will help me find a career in the aviation industry which is my long term goal. ”
