When I was born not many people know this but I am actually cited to begin which I was never Bishea impaired I was never born blind and visually impaired now but that was not always the way for me and you know some people say that they would kill themselves if there are Bishea impaired in my opinion you need to wake up I’m Bishea impaired I have to wake up at the reality that I’m gonna be blind for the rest of my life and there’s nothing I can do about it all I can do is move forward that’s all I can do and know one or nothing is gonna change that I am who I am and anyone who wants to change my life for their own benefit well you’re badly mistaken because I am here to change my life for me not for anyone else and that should be the main point of being visually impaired aired
In today’s world specially impaired people are treated like they have a curse but I am visually impaired and I am not cursed and I will not rest until people with blindness and Bashan impairment realise that they have a place in the world and that place is to be accepted not discriminated
