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.
This couldn’t have been further from the truth.
I said that I was blind in most of my applications and put it on my CV.
It’s nothing to be ashamed of and I wanted to be open from the start.
