Episode 15 – ASK A.B.B.Y Volume 1
This week we’re super excited to introduce a feature that we will be revisiting from time to time here on the podcast. It’s a little something we are calling Ask A Blind Beginnings Youth! We have gathered a collection of our youth to answer questions about Blindness and Low Vision that we’ve received. It’s a frank and open discussion of a wide range of topics, from questions of fashion to escalator navigation. If you have ever been curious at all about being blind or partially sighted but were afraid to ask, you don’t want to miss this episode!
If you’re interested in submitting a question for our next episode of ASK A.B.B.Y, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your question and we could feature it on our next installment!
Episode 14 – Let’s Meet Mark and Lisa
It’s a very special episode this week as we take a break from our normal format and offer our listeners a glimpse into one of our online programs, Exploring Work Wednesdays. This program offers up an interview style discussion about careers with adults that are blind or partially sighted. In this particular session we meet Mark, who is a Registered Massage Therapist and owns his own business, and his sister Lisa, a Psychiatric Social Worker. It’s a frank and open conversation about what it’s like entering into the workplace as someone who is blind or partially sighted that you won’t want to miss!
Episode 13 – Let’s Talk About Youth Leadership
The Blind Beginnings Youth Leadership Program has been one of the most popular and important programs at Blind Beginnings since 2010, and this week Jinnie and Nika join Shawn as co-hosts to talk all about the important skills that it helps build in the youth that attend. Bridget, who will be attending the program this year for the first time, joins the conversation as well and discusses what aspects she’s looking forward to and what skills she’s excited about building.
Episode 12 – Going Back To School
It’s that time of the year again when students all over the country begin to prepare to head back to school; however, with COVID, that means that this year is very different than most. This week Nika and Kolby join Shawn as co-hosts and welcome Jill, Ella, and Aman to the show to discuss what it’s like to be going back to High School or University this year and the anxiety, concerns, and challenges that they are facing as both students as well as students who are blind or partially sighted.
Episode 11 – Let’s Talk About Music
How do people who are blind or partially sighted learn, access, and perform music? It’s a question that gets asked a lot, and this week Nika and Randi join Shawn and special guest Lori (who also happens to be Randi’s Mom) to discuss this and share stories of what it was like to grow up taking music lessons.
