MONTHLY BEAUTIES | Brittany Winner
As we approach the end of 2020, Bold Blind Beauty is taking it slow this month however we thought it’d be cool to republish a few of our most popular posts of 2020. The identical twin, Brittany Winner, of The Winner Twins is a multi-talented author, teacher, artist, and CEO of a nonprofit. We are especially excited to share Brittany’s post as it was originally published in 2018 yet it still resonates with our followers.
“I’ve been legally blind for ten months now!”~Brittany Winner
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.
