My name is Rebecca and I am legally Blind. I have no low contrast vision, hypersensitivity to light, no peripheral vision, poor distance vision and am completely blind in low light or no light. I read braille and print and use a cane. I will be turning 16 in three months, and I am in tenth grade.
Welcome to the site-feel free to ask any questions!

Hi Rebecca, I turned 16 in august and I'm a junior. I only had a tiny bet of inner peripheral but now only sunlight allows me to see anything. I was just wondering, people have been talking about someone named Katy a lot, who is she???
Re:new girlPosted by beccawhizkid on 1/14/2010 at 8:35 PM
Katy is a girl who used to talk on here. Unfortunately, she passed away about a month or so ago.

Hi, I live in northern Idaho, lol no wonder I didn't here about this site until yesterday. What do you like to study in school? I'm a science chick myself, last yeat I took the coolest accelerated biology class, and this year I'm in honnors chem. It's really fun but it gives me a head ache. lol
Re:new girlPosted by beccawhizkid on 1/15/2010 at 4:02 PM
I am a total science obsessed person as well.I take Honors Chemistry and I work in a lab at SUNY Stony Brook University! I love science I want to research retinal disorders and get a PhD in Computational Biology. Do you take any other higher level classes?
Re:new girlPosted by rachel N on 1/15/2010 at 5:12 PM
eh... Names Rachel. Welcome to AFB and nice to meet you. I am a total as well, and 17. I am in to the higher sciences or rather the humanities. I am a bit of a humanitarian, but then again... and I am in the tip of California.
Btw, Aland I could barely understand your post, as it was so full of grammatical and spelling errors. I had to read between the lines.
Re:new girlPosted by water cat on 1/15/2010 at 7:47 PM
Hi! I am not taking any other accelerated classes besides science. That's cool that you want to research retinal disorders, I would really love to go into medicine. Oh wait, I'm taking an accelerated math class, geometry, oops I forgot that one. I really stink at English, I guess it shows. I was just wondering what kind of music do you like? Btw, typo, my name isn’t aland it’s Alana.

I love classical music (because I am a violinist) but I also enjoy the popular stuff too! I took geometry last year and now I am taking pre calc. I am very excited!

Ouch, excelerated math?
I do have an AP class though, I do AP Environment.
And... Yeah... I like older music... myself,
and okay, then, Alana... Yeah, It might be a great idea to spell your name right, you think?

It’s really great that we get to meet so many people like us who have problems with their vision and come and interact with each other here!! I’ve been coming here for a few months now and have made a lot of friends and now I look forward to coming here everyday and spending some time here as I have no one else to talk to at home!! I love to write and spend my free time writing stories and poems!!
