Update: I’m into the Semi Finals!! Thanks everyone.
Exciting news…I’ve applied for the Holman Prize! Created specifically for legally blind individuals with a penchant for exploration of all types, the Prize provides financial backing – up to $25,000 – for three individuals to explore the world and push their limits.
Check out my application video below. Please LIKE the video on youtube and share it with your friends to help me win the $25,000 prize towards my dream project:

“The Holman Prize is not meant to save the world or congratulate someone for leaving the house. This prize will spark unanticipated accomplishments in the blindness community. You will see blind people doing things that surprise and perhaps even confuse you. These new LightHouse prizes will change perceptions about what blind people are capable of doing.”
— Bryan Bashin, CEO, LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired
