The Host ─ Alana Nichols
Alana was a unique story from the start. Born in Taiwan, Alana was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of deafness in both ears, known as the stone deaf. Alana’s parents didn’t give up and travelled the world searching for a solution. At the age of two, Alana received an invasive cochlear implant surgery, which finally brought sounds into Alana’s life and allowed her to learn to hear and speak. With an ironic twist of fate, Alana is now an English-speaking travel show host. Through positivity and determination, Alana hopes to leave the audience with a healthy dose of inspiration and optimism. She aspires to use filmmaking as a powerful tool to share her stories and makes positive impacts to the world.
主持人 ─Alana Nichols (鄭雅文)
Alana本身就是個特別的故事。在台灣出生的她是個雙耳極重度聽損兒，連飛機呼嘯而過的聲音都完全聽不到。她的父母尋遍世界，終於在她兩歲時，找到醫生為她植入人工電子耳，帶她走出原來沉寂的世界，並學習說話。現在，她成為英語旅遊節目「Follow Alana」的主持人，在每段冒臉旅途中與不同的人相遇，交織出獨一無二的故事。Alana 立志用影片分享故事，期待這些分享能為人們帶來正面的影響力，並成為讓世界更美麗的催化劑。
