Study study and more study

Whoever said you can't complete university degrees and be vision impaired? Or legally blind? Yes you definitely can. 

My unfortunate absence is due to the fact I am studying two degrees at present, a masters and also psychology, and have been swamped in uni work. It has been a constant battle working and studying whilst being vision impaired but I am one determined cookie. 

I has been quite a challenge finding ways to read my textbooks, do assignments and keep up to speed with all the work. Once I found the tools to help me study I got into a rhythm and it wasn't so hard. I had to get my textbooks in PDF format and load it onto my iPad so I could read them, and the uni would send me any document in a larger font.

I also completed my first exams being vision impaired, as I was diagnosed at the end of my last degree, so I was unsure of how I would cope and even what adaptations I would need. I was given extra time but I'm happy to say I finished way before the allocated time (such a nerd). The only problem I had was colouring in the little circles on the multiple choice answer sheet and had to get someone to do it for me. 

It has been a really rewarding experience and I must say oh so satisfying to have completed four subjects whilst working. 

If you have ever had a dream or a goal to study and have a certain profession, GO FOR IT. There is always a way. 

Stay determined!!


  1. Really glad to hear that you've been continuing with your education :) With all the technology at our disposal these days, I don't think there are any limitations to what visually impaired people can do.

  2. Also, can you please remove captcha verification from your site. It is really difficult for visually impaired people to type captcha strings :)

  3. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
