The BirdBox Challenge

lets Talk – BIRDBOX

Here it is! The video where I discuss this film & how realistic it actually is living with vision impairment in comparison to the Birdbox challenge videos that had gone viral!

I did this video to educate you all by using something recent in social media. I hope with this you relate to me in some way & what it is like to live with real vision impairment!

I want to encourage others in the vision impaired & blind community to speak up & express themselves!

This challenge is something I know a lot of people may feel offended by & I also did when I watched some challenge videos. I decided to use my feelings as fuel for myself making this video & turn it it into something positive to help people understand, so I hope you do!

I hope that you can take how you feel about something whether negative or positive & choose to create a bridge to help people understand & relate to you & what your going through!

Please ask me any questions & comment or message what you think about the film, challenges & my video!
