Welcome to Finding My Vision!


  Life is hard. No matter who you are. We all struggle with our identities, relationships, decisions, careers, and everything we do. As a person who is blind or vision impaired, life has many more challenges. We all seek independence, but most of the time, we have to rely on others    

     Not being able to do something on your own, especially as an adult, lead to anxiety, depression and hopelessness. I have created this site to try to help you regain some of your independence by providing:

  • resources 
  • accessibility 
  • support 
  • life hacks 
  • mindful activities
  • educational and career opportunities

     And as much information and links to information to help make your life a little better. This site will also allow your loved ones to better understand what you are going through by providing them with the tools to better assist you while still allowing you to live your best life.     

      I am taking this journey with you and will add content when I find it. I also encourage you to share your questions, experiences, trials and tribulations, fears, and hopes, because we might not be able to do it alone, but we can do it together!
