Abigale’s Insights on Beauty & Sight Loss

“Society has a tendency to look at people with visible disabilities as broken. At the same time we look at people with invisible disabilities with an undue amount of skepticism. The real issue is our broken society. Equal access to human rights can only happen by breaking down visible and invisible barriers.”

It’s a serious disservice to use broad brushstrokes to paint people without knowing their full story. Projecting fear and pity onto others from our limited understanding can hurt and devalue people.

Here at Bold Blind Beauty, we believe we can improve humanity by changing the way we perceive one another. The way we achieve this goal is by beginning from a place of genuine respect and kindness.

There are many people living with disabilities who are positive, passionate and living their lives with purpose. Likewise, there are many people without disabilities who do not positively contribute to society.
