My current situation is difficult but it's another hurdle I will conquer. I lost my job at the start of the pandemic which has increased the financial pressure on my family, put us at risk of falling into rental arrears and losing our home.
Finding work is important. However, I need to find a supportive environment to accommodate my visual impairment. Since birth, I've had a condition that limits my vision. I've regularly had to have operations and procedures to help improve my sight. None of which have been possible during the pandemic. However, this has not dampened my drive and passion to succeed.
I'm excited to use this platform to springboard me into an exciting career. As long as I have the right software and the understanding of my employer, I'll be ready to succeed. I want to share my story and hope it can inspire others, especially those with impairments.
My vision may be limited physically but mentally I can see further than you could ever imagine.
