I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

  • The Ski Hill I work for has a couple of days were people who are blind or hearing loss can come out with their guides to ski. It's actually pretty cool to watch them and I have snowboarded when they were there. You wouldn't tell that they had some sort of disability and they are always the friendliest people. They do also wear the I am blind or I am deaf so people know and can avoid accidents. Pretty neat program and I am glad to always watching them when they ski, keep up skiing its a fun sport! Yes I agree not many people don't pay attention, I've been almost ran into because people would barrel towards me not paying attention. Or they will cut me off and I almost collide into them, that's why I stopped playing music into my helmet because it cuts out the noises around me. I like to hear if someone is close to me or what type of snow I'm dealing with. I love snowboarding because it is a rush and it lets me forget about what's going on in my life. I agree with all of your points when it comes to freedom on the ski hill.

  • You said that you used an earpiece, but if you Skied more I assume you would use a headset with speakers in your helmet, or at least this is what I, and the people I know like me who are blind and nationally and or internationally ski race use. It’s also very interesting to me that you got guided from the back, and always get guided from the back, because I’ve never seen anyone guide from the back before, and I have also never been guided from the back before. This is a great video, loved it!

  • I really love skiing but your right, some people just don't watch out! I was skiing and I was on some moguls I'm not too great at moguls so I was taking it slow and looking at my skis and ahead of me when suddenly out of the blue this person comes skiing super fast down and I tried to get out of the way but they ran right into me got up, yelled at me (I'm not sure what they said I was in Austria and I only know a little German) and skied away! So there's a little skiing story to whoever is reading this!

  • This is great because I've been skiing since I was 9 and it was always a MASSIVE part of my childhood growing up. Like me and my dad would go out every winter and take a big trip up to Maine (I live in CT) and just ski all week long. Some of my best memories are me skiing and I think it's great that she still gets to enjoy it even though she is blind

  • Hey Mollly. I kinda understand about being blind. I've been legally blind in my right eye since I was about 8. I'm 30 now. I've played plenty of sports and have had plenty of hobbies. It has always been hard for me to adapt to every activity that I've tried to go for. You're an inspiration, even for people older than you. Keep up the good work girl.

  • Omg you make me want to try skiing again. I went skiing a few times when I was young and it’s as if my legs don’t obey and I keep crashing into trees, snow and fences. I like the sensation but it’s the most panic I’ve felt voluntarily while doing something supposedly fun.
