We’d like you to meet our newest AccessAble champion, Holly Tuke, who is helping to spread the word about AcccessAble and the vital work we do.
I’m a disability and lifestyle blogger from Yorkshire. I started my blog, Life of a Blind Girl, in 2015 to share my experiences of living with a vision impairment, educate people on sight loss and disability, tackle some of the common misconceptions surrounding these topics and break down barriers. I enjoy sharing my personal experiences of life with a vision impairment, whilst tackling attitudes and perceptions. I have a passion for helping others and I try to do this through my writing. Through my blog and social media channels, I hope to help others.
I’m registered as blind due to a condition called Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) as I was born at 24 weeks. I have a detached retina in my left eye and only have light perception in my right eye, so I have no useful vision. I’m a long cane user. I don’t let my blindness stop me from living life the way I want to, I do all the things that my sighted friends do such as going to concerts, having days out, keeping active and just being your average 23-year-old.
I’m extremely excited to be an AccessAble Champion, I hope to spread my love of going to concerts and travelling and also raise awareness on the importance of accessibility.
