Melissa Benson: Anything is possible with perseverance & determination

Session Info:

I share with my audience the initial time of losing my vision, through all the effort from the specialists to the inevitable outcome of permanent blindness at the age of 20. Understanding that I needed to change a few things in life to move forward to a new view on life. Dealing with the emotional factors of family, friends and society.


  • Building new friendships.
  • Gaining trust within society.
  • Dealing with social events (ie concerts, sports events ect).
  • Admitting when I need to ask for help.
  • Setting long term goals, keeping you focused on the future.
