Anyone who can overcome adversity can be a source of great inspiration to younger generations and old. Individuals leading productive lives in spite of disabilities are no exception. Meet Millad Bokhouri, a 31-year-old who just graduated with a Master of Public Health Degree and Certificate in Healthcare Management. He accomplished such a feat even though he has been blind for the past six years. Bokhouri sat down for an interview recently and discussed how he manages, and some of the more common questions sighted people ask him about living with blindness.
People often tell Millad that it must be scary, to which he counters, “Of course it’s scary. But what they’re missing is they haven’t learned the adaptive tools a blind person utilizes in being fully independent.”
At the San Diego Center for the Blind, we offer counseling, classes & support groups, and vision rehabilitation services. Please contact us to learn more.
