Alex, Young Voices Leader
Hi, my name is Alex, I am 20 years old and I was born with three eye conditions – Glaucoma, Aniridia, and Nystagmus. Sport is my passion. I currently play Goalball at intermediate level for Croydon’s Croysutt Warriors and at Elite level for Birmingham. I am also part of Goalball UK’s Talent Squad as well as Goalball UK’s This Girl Can project.
I joined Young Voices as I wanted to give people an insight into what it is like as a young person with a visual impairment. I have been part of Young Voices since the very beginning, so I have recently become a Young Voices Young Leader for the group. I hope to help the group ensure those with or without a disability are aware of our needs and I’m also passionate about making sport as accessible as possible. I believe by providing teachers, professionals, coaches and so on with the right information they can help support the next generation of blind and partially sighted young people achieve their goals.
