Jill Stephenson | Blind Beauty Issue 11
“I am proud of my blindness, because it allows me to see the world in my own unique and beautiful way. I am not traditional, thanks to my sight, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has taken some time, but I have found the ability, through my disability, to see myself for everything I am, and I love every bit of myself. No matter how “strange” I may seem.” ~Jill Stephenson
