Sean and Isiah’s Intro video:

Hello all,

Thank you for joining us in our journey to world services for the blind.

In this first week, we are going to share some facts about WSB.

Their mission statement

World services for the blind empowers people who are blind and visually impaired in the United States and around the world to achieve sustainable independence.

Sean’s thoughts

I love the last part of that, sustainable independence: it is so important for blind and visually impaired individuals to be able to advocate for themselves and be independent in this world. Organizations like World services for the blind help others see that know matter what abilities you have, it’s all about what you can do not what you can’t.

Isiah’s thoughts

WSB can help people who go through there program get employment.

Speaking of programs, world services for the blind have several different programs and certifications that can potentially lead to a job. For example, me and Isiah are going in to their assistive technology program.

Fun fact, world services for the blind is deemed one of the most comprehensive rehabilitation centers for people who are blind and visually impaired.

Thank you all again for joining us as we challenge ourselves and take on Little Rock Arkansas.See you next email,
