Brittany Winner | Blind Beauty Issue 23
“I’ve been legally blind for ten months now!” ~Brittany Winner
Identical twin, Brittany Winner, of The Winner Twins is a multi-talented person. She is an author, teacher, artist, and CEO of a nonprofit. Here’s my favorite: she is a magician in training.
As frequently happens, I stumbled upon this stunning photo (featured image) of Brittany on Instagram and I had to meet her. After I introduced myself we talked a little about Bold Blind Beauty and she told me about her sight loss. Getting her permission to share this post with you made my day.
Brittany’s caption posted on Instagram:
“This picture is of me going to my very first event blind. I was SO nervous and scared to tell my friends and family, but I was determined to keep having a wonderful life regardless of my vision. That night I went to the Magic Castle with @jpendragonmagic @briannawinner @todd_mccaffrey @dianawolfemagic!! Thank you for this wonderful memory!
It gave me hope that I would get back on my feet again and I did!”
@blindnewworld’s caption is perfect: “Sometimes all you need to feel confident is a little black dress – and a little white cane.”
New to blindness, I’m heartened to see Brittany thriving. We are among the ranks of many others who are working to shift stereotypes about blindness.
