I had been playing with the demons in my head for a long time about acceptance of going blind especially the battle of using a white cane and I'm now sad to say the demons won for a long time. I'd started to use my cane reluctantly in my home town its like a stigma almost a burning shame but I knew I was strong but needed the right push to do it.

St Mary's School Henley Molly’s talk to the school children at St Mary’s was so positive and inspiring. She encouraged them to always look for a positive in difficult situations.

Probably more so because mum and dad are in another country with next-to-no wifi, meaning I can't contact them at all- nor would I want to hassle them while they're enjoying themselves in complete blissful Cuba!My parents have done so much for us 4 children, and I know Dad did his fair bit to help my brothers out while at university.I have always been close to my family, and love talking to them and would everyday if I could. Them being in a slow developed country really shows right now. I miss them! I really am a homely person, and…
