Third instalment of end of year Team Blog
Well 2018 is nearly coming to an end and what a year it has been. Personally, I have won several awards to highlight the work I do to raise awareness, campaign, advocate and create engagement opportunities relating to sight loss and try my best to empower those less confident outside work on a voluntary basis.
As an Ambassador for Retina Uk, I was invited to Westminister Palace for a special celebration event. Introducing the Celebrating Diversity and Disability Category to a typical Beauty Pageant Talent show which vision impaired people had the opportunity to showcase their wonderful wisdom, tantalising talents and beautiful personality. If you would like to find out more about the next event, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org I also became a Lady of the organisation Ladies of All Nations International where I am a representative for anyone wishing to find our more around vision impairment, raise awareness with living, dealing, coping and managing sight loss and still aim to achieve ambitions, aspirations and more.
This year has gone far too quickly and perhaps I feel this way as most of my weekends were taken up training for the Peak 50 Bronze Challenge which we, The Look Who’s Walking Team undertook in September 2018. Definitely the biggest and hardest challenge I have taken part in.
However my biggest life changing moment was being matched to my Guide Dog. he has certainly made a positive impact to my life and made me feel a great sense of confidence tackling routes and travelling in the dark. Of course I still feel that we need to still work on a few things but overall he has bought so much joy to my life already.
I am planning to take it easy in 2019 but honestly who am I kidding, I have so many ideas, hopes, bucket lists both in and out of work that I would like to work towards.
Hope you had a good Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year.
