In episode nine

With the departure of our lead presenter Joe last month to pastures new, we had a bit of a mutiny on our hands when some young people involved with our Realise project took the helm. In this special episode six young people chat and share about all things sight loss related, including:
  • Hopes for the future: ‘Google, get on the driverless cars’ - Nathan 
  • Starting secondary school and getting into work: ‘I hope my sight doesn’t hold me back’ - Niamh
  • Making new friends and explaining your sight:‘playing hide and seek in a crowd can be difficult!’ - Conor
  • Words of wisdom for anyone recently experiencing sight loss
  • And much more! Including accidental trips to Newry, playing partially sighted football, and Josh signs us off with a bit of funky folk guitar playing!
