Blossoming at college

Katherine’s daughter

I wanted To share a very special week with you all. My daughter who has aniridia performed at her first college dance performance this week.

She was amazing. She reduced me to tears she was memorising honestly. To all those worried about their children or keep being told by school negative comments, I’m letting you know don’t worry about them. They are amazing …keep fighting for their dreams. She performed alongside her peers. She kept up and delivered a performance of contemporary and street dance, from which nobody in the room would have a clue she was visually impaired and had learning difficulties. 

She has settled in college and for the first time in her life she is making close friendships and is loving every second of her course.

Fighting for this and believing in her was the best decision of my life. She is blossoming in to a beautiful young woman and a wonderful dancer.
