Brittany Winner | Blind Beauty Issue 30

“Thank you @beenymph @pinupgirlclothing for this beautiful shot of me. This picture defines who I am at this point in my life. I couldn’t be more proud of the accomplishments I’ve been able to achieve in this last year since I’ve lost my vision. I’ve had an incredible community to help me grow and learn, as well support from my friends and family.

I know this is just the beginning of my journey and I have so much to learn. Something happened that I never thought could, my blindness has given me a gift. By having a disability, it has given me the ability to overcome anything. I know that no matter what life throws at me I will have what it takes to overcome and persevere.” ~Brittany Winner

Brittany shared the above quote on Instagram along with her stunning photo included in this post: The image and her words were so striking to me because it shows we are making progress in how we perceive blindness. “The white cane is more than just a mobility tool for blind and vision impaired users. It is also a badge of strength and boldness. It allows us to take back our lives, regardless of where we fall on the sight loss spectrum.”

Blind Beauty Issue 30 Featured Image Description:

Featured image is a faux fashion magazine cover titled Blind Beauty. Brittany is on the cover dressed head to toe in black. Her pantsuit is a black and dark gray diamond pattern. She is sitting with her legs crossed in a black director’s chair and the white cane is leaning against the right side of the chair. What makes the photo so striking is the dark blue background which makes the white cane pop. Brit’s long dark hair is draped down the front of her right shoulder. She has a bright red lip and looks all about business as she rests her face on her upraised left fist.

Blocks of text superimposed on Brittany’s photo are: “Bold | She Keeps Pressing Onward,” “Blind | She Has Deeper Insight,” “Beautiful | She Sees To The Heart Of Others”

“I’ve been legally blind for ten months now!” ~Brittany Winner

Identical twin, Brittany Winner, of The Winner Twins is a multi-talented person. She is an author, teacher, artist, and CEO of a nonprofit. Here’s my favorite: she is a magician in training.

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.
