"I was born with an eye condition called aniridia, which means I have no iris in either eyes and enlarged pupils.
"Some days can be difficult as I’m very sensitive to light. I play football and have gained so much confidence from this. I play in the Devon Ability Counts League against other teams with people who have different disabilities. I’ve recently received a player of the year award from last year’s season. I'm currently preparing to take on the challenge of doing 1000 miles in 200 days to raise money for RNIB. Through doing this, I want to inspire other people with a visual impairment and show them that anything is possible. My challenge started on 30 July 2018 and will finish on 15 February 2019. I’ll be completing five miles every day through a mixture of walking, running and cycling. I’m hoping to raise £400 in this time."
