Liz Oleksa | Blind Beauty 5
“I had lost my sight in September 2012 from Diabetic Retinopathy. Logan (son) had seen how I went from living my life as a person who was sighted and had no self-confidence, to being a person with no physical sight and finally being proud of who I am. Finally, I can walk in a room with my head held high, knowing that I am enough and that I don’t need to prove myself to anyone except myself.”~Liz Oleksa
Liz, aka Her Royal Blindness, is the President of the Lehigh Valley Council of Blind.
