Georgie Beasley | Blind Beauty 63
“Teenage years are tough, learning who you are and understanding what you’re going to become. This was extra difficult as I was also learning about something I was losing. The feeling of losing something important every day over and over again.”~Georgie Beasley
Being a teenager isn’t easy, let alone a teenager who is losing their sight. Today’s Blind Beauty, Georgie Beasley, is losing her eyesight to Stargardt Disease, a form of juvenile macular degeneration.
Diagnosed with the Stargardt Disease as an adolescent, Georgie is an extraordinarily, positive role model. While she shares some of the struggles associated with her sight loss she has a remarkable insight on life. Georgie’s desire to build awareness about sight loss prompted her to share her story on social media. As a matter of fact, earlier in the year she was featured in the Kalgoorlie Miner a local newspaper in Australia.
“I have come to accept myself and what I have [Stargardt Disease]. Though it really sucks that I can’t get my license, I have been offered so many great opportunities. It [sight loss] has also changed my perspective on life and how to treat others and live life.”~Georgie Beasley
We will be hearing more from Georgie as she will also be a featured Woman On The Move in 2019.
