Interview

Condition: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH)

1. What is your profession and why did you decide to choose this field?

I am the founder of Blind Beauty which is a skincare brand that aims to make beauty products that are more accessible for the blind and VI community. I’m also an advocate for sight loss and chronic illness. I chose to start using my social media to start raising awareness of my rare chronic illness which caused my sight loss in the hope that I can help prevent the same thing happening to others.

2. What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?

The most rewarding thing about what I do is connecting with others in a similar situation to me and also being able to help those that have just started their sight loss journey.

3. What is your advice to all the other VIPs around the world who don't believe they can be successful in the area of their interest because of their disability?

Your disability does not limit nor define you! Yes, we may see differently and yes we may have to do things differently but we can be as successful as anyone else. The sky is your only limit, don’t let anyone tell you any different.
