Blind Beauty 78 | Cassie Ingram

I want to break this stigma that people with disabilities must live a limited life. You can do anything you set your mind to. It might be in a different way than everyone else but keep striving for those goals. Reach for your dreams. And never give up!

~Cassie Ingram

I’ve always been a positive person and when I was younger, I had goals and determination. But after obtaining my Associate’s Degree in Child Development, I transferred to a University and things began to change. I started getting a lot of questions from teachers and students on how I would finish out my degree considering I was legally blind. At the time, I didn’t realize how much I was going to let this affect me. While other things played a part, in the end, I left college.

Then, earlier this year when I started my YouTube Channel, On The Fritz, I became involved in the blind and visually impaired community. Up to this point, I hadn’t realized how much I had let my visual impairment run my life. I had settled. I wasn’t involved in anything. I had no goals. I would tell myself I couldn’t do something because of my vision or not being able to drive. So much negativity for a self-proclaiming, positive person.

It’s really weird how something can be happening to you for years, even staring you down, but you never even see it! Just after a few months, I am now so happy to be returning to my old self again! I have goals! Determination! I am stronger! I want to break this stigma that people with disabilities must live a limited life. You can do anything you set your mind to. It might be in a different way than everyone else but keep striving for those goals. Reach for your dreams. And never give up!

  1. Totally agree with you Cassie! No one, sighted or unsighted, should be discouraged from extending themselves and exploring avenues and better yet, facing and accepting any challenges that they find. Bouquets to you for finding, following and successfully expanding the area you’re now in.

    1. Thank you Wendy. Passing along your comment to Cassie! 😘~Steph
