My name is Alex, I am 19 years old and I was born with three eye conditions – Glaucoma, Aniridia, and Nystagmus. I’ve recently finished my final year of college studying level 3 Sports and Exercise Science. Sports is my passion and I currently play Goalball at intermediate level for Croydon’s Croysutt Warriors / Elite level for Birmingham. Also I am part of Goalball UKs Talent Squad as well as Goalball UK This Girl Can project group.
I joined Young Voices as I wanted to give people an insight into what it is like as a young person with visual impairment. I want to make sure that people are aware of our needs and to make sports as accessible as possible. By providing schools, universities, office places, coaches and trainers with the right information, they can help support the next generation of blind and partiality sighted young people achieve their goals.
