“I love politics; that’s what I do. I had the privilege of working in Texas for Senator Wendy Davis’s gubernatorial bid, where I got a lot of field experience. I was the first blind person to actively work with the Texas Democratic Party doing field work. Had it not been for the training I received at the Louisiana Center for the Blind, I wouldn’t of had the skills or the confidence to be able to perform my job. Half of our time as blind people is spent trying to prove to other people, to our sighted counterparts who really do mean well, that we are just as capable, and that we can do our jobs just as efficiently, if not better.“
