Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Hi! :)

I just found this website today. My name is Gabriella and I am a totally blind sophomore in high school. I thought this would be a good place to talk to people like me, so I decided to join.

Hello, Sarah and Gabrella sorry if i have spelled your name wrong i guess everyone makes mistakes anyways my name is Paulina i am 17 going to be 18 soon and I just graduated high school and i plan to start college as well.

Re:Hi! :)



Paulina, what college are you going to apply to? I want to go to Cal State or Victor Valley College.


Re:Hi! :)



Hi Sarah and Paulina! I love rollercoasters! I also like acting, singing, and playing the piano. When I graduate I want to major in english because I love writing, I'd also like to be a music teacher or a musician. I am totally blind but I have a little bit of light perception but it doesn't really do anything for me, but it's better than absolutely nothing, rite? Oh, and it's okay that you spelled my name wrong, a lot of people do because it's kind of long. My friends just call me Brie.

My favorite rollercoaster is probably, Top Thrill Dragster at Ceder Point in Ohio.


Re:Hi! :)



Desperation (the Wolf Man 1941 score) Composed By Frank Skinner & Hans Salter is a favorite.
Songs composed by Hans Zimmer, Tyler Bates, Clint Mansell, Alan Menken and Stravinsky are a few favorites as well.


Re:Hi! :)



I like poetry as well! But my favoritesare probably just writing short stories about random things that sound interesting at the time lol.
