I wanted to work but 250 employers couldn’t see past my visual impairment – Metro

When I was 13, I lost the vast majority of my sight to a rare genetic disorder leaving me visually impaired.

I’m now registered blind and I have an amazing guide dog called Goldie.

This didn’t stop me from living my life and I graduated with a 2:1 in Theology.

Then I began what turned out to be a long and difficult job hunt.

I’d done loads of volunteering and I was under the illusion that with a good degree and lots of experience, I would find a job pretty easily.
