Rachele, although faced with vision impairments, is a successful student in her third academic year of university thanks to the training and support from CNIB.
“Due to an incident, I lost a significant amount of my vision when I was eight. I used to play soccer and read a lot, but I got discouraged as the things that used to be easy, were now very difficult for me. I soon lost all confidence in myself in every aspect of life. But CNIB gave me access to the resources and the training I needed to succeed. Thanks to CNIB’s support, I am in my third academic year of university, and I have more confidence in my capabilities.”
