What problems did you have in school?

The only problems I ever had orientated around the difficulty my severe visual impairment caused. It made P.E burdensome, especially since everything we did was so visual (football, hockey, netball, rounders) and wasn't adapted to my needs, as well as teachers constantly using the blackboard and whiteboard without providing the notes to me. Sighted friends would have to read it out to me instead.

Do you wear any jewelry?

I do! I'm obsessed with accessorising and colour co-ordinating my outfits. As the jewellery I choose is so tactile - incorporating beads, sequins and feathers - I find it easy to distinguish each piece, as someone with a severe visual impairment.
