"I remember often wondering why I was just a little bit different, why I never quite seemed to enjoy the same spark of fun and satisfaction as my classmates. Since discovering RNIB aged 12, I realised there was a place for me in this world, that I could make something of myself and that I had real friends. I discovered Haggeye, and through that, opportunities to volunteer and develop myself, and the confidence to study and gain a job. Through RNIB and stories like this I dream of a future where disability will be as much a part of society as race or gender and where, thanks to technology, equality will be an “as-is” rather than an aspiration. RNIB motivated me to make something of myself. I hope reading this will for you, too."
