Blind Beauty 77 | Terese Goren

Blind Beauty 77 | Terese Goren

Growing up I really struggled with the way I looked, frequently hearing comments about how my eyes looked funny.  Even at the age of 50, there are still some days where I lack confidence in my appearance.

I’m so excited to introduce you to today’s Blind Beauty, Terese Goren who will also be our featured Woman On The Move next week. I met Terese earlier this summer at Wichita State University (WSU) campus, host to the week-long Envision 2019 Level Up Conference

As a lover of technology, I was naturally drawn to Terese when I sat in on one of her courses during the conference. She’s a brilliant Assistive Technology Specialist whos vibrant personality brightens any room. Later in the week, I got to know a little more about her during a semi-formal networking event as we were seated together during the dinner. I must admit I was thrilled to be seated with Terese as I was dying to pick her brain on cell phone technology as it relates to accessibility.

A fashionista at heart, when our conversation turned to fashion I needed to know more about this beautiful woman. We found we shared a passion for beauty and addressing some of the stereotypes where beauty and blindness intertwine. Terese’s love for fashion is evident in how she presents herself to the world. Next week you’ll get to hear her beauty advice to those who are new to sight loss. At the heart of Bold Blind Beauty is the message of empowerment and confidence and I really like what Terese has to say about this topic:

“I know this world is all about “the look”. Almost every morning I strive to put myself together.  What’s more important is the confidence and belief in yourself. The truth is you can be dressed to the 9’s but if you don’t have the confidence to back it up then that look isn’t going to work.”

Terese, thank you for allowing me to shine the spotlight on you. You are a Bold Blind Beauty!

  1. Such a great post about Therese. I love all your spotlights on women

    1. Awe, Becky🤗 You’re giving me the warm and fuzzies. Thank you for coming by and reading about Terese and for your very kind words. ❣❣❣

  2. Terese is obviously beautiful inside and out.

    1. Hey Camie, how are you? It’s so very good to read your comment. Thank you for reading about Terese and commenting. I’m restructuring how I do things beginning with no social media on the weekends. As it will be an ongoing process I really want to get to a point where I’ll be able to interact with you and other favorite blogger friends of mine on WordPress.

      1. I would like that! Thanks for thinking of me as a favorite. How sweet! I still love visiting your blog. So uplifting! 🦋 I’ve been so busy in my day-to-day life that I haven’t been in the blogosphere as much as I’d like. I approve of your no social media rule on the weekends.

      2. This is my third social media free weekend and I’ve read no less than three books and I feel so darn good. One of the books, The Introvert Advantage has been a real eye-opener as I knew I was an introvert but I mistakenly used the word shy and introvert interchangeably. To my surprise this book breaks down what it really means to be an introvert and it turns out while we are in the minority in comparison with extroverts the way we recharge our batteries is the major difference between the two. I know I’m rambling a bit but I haven’t felt this good in a long time and I know I’m on the right track. Saying all of this to say that I find the blogging community a more authentic group of people and I need to refocus my attention.

      3. I have also found the blogging community to be pretty authentic. Most bloggers are supportive of one another. That book sounds fascinating! Have a terrific day, Stephanae! 🙂
