Want to know why I walk and a little bit about me. Keep reading to find out.
Since birth I have been considered visually impaired. I was diagnosed with cone distrophy which is a genetic disease involving missing cones and causing lack of vision. My entire life I have relied on CNIB for their services and it's about time that I did something for them in return for all that they have done for me. Over the past few years I have become more involved in the blind community, meeting new friends and reaching my full potential.
Vision loss has definitely not stopped me from doing the activities that I love. I enjoy things like gymnastics, kayaking, camping, swimming, tandem biking, drawing, going on adventures, and hanging with my friends. Basically doing what any other teenager loves to do. I have definitely learned to find the ability in my disability.
This is why I’m participating in Night Steps, to help raise funds for CNIB. Please make a donation to my page so that you can help me help CNIB and Canadians in our community, who are just like me. We are already on our way to reaching our goal of $500. A lack of sight is most definitely not a lack of vision, and if you believe it then you can achieve it!!! Let's make a difference.
