For this year's Winter Break, I was fortunate to go to Park City, and have daily lessons with the National Ability Center. I’m terrified of skiing down a steep slope, and as a beginner, all slopes seemed steep to me. The first day, I stayed on the magic carpet for most of class, and the slow pace felt good. The 2nd day, I was on the beginner chair, and then a more advanced chair. I went on a short blue run, and was not sure I could do it. I kept pushing forward. On the 3rd day, my instructor Eric said his mission was to get me to trust my equipment over the next few days, and to stop being afraid. No fear allowed!
The goal of my blog is to increase awareness of childhood glaucoma and other eye diseases, and to unite kids like me living with visual impairment.
