Jennifer's Story

Life I must say that not too much has happened with me since graduating from high school-well nothing too good anyway. After high school, I enrolled at CCRI and took classes on and off until 2003, but because of physical limitations and not having the right accommodations provided by CCRI, I haven't earned any sort of degree yet. In June of 2001, I lost my eye sight completely. I had lost sight several times previous to 2001, but the doctors were always able to restore some vision. The surgery I had in 2001 was the last straw though; there was too much damage to my optic nerve for any possibility of restoration. In 2003 I started looking for a job.

rejections, I gave up; I think I applied for jobs with every company in Providence County, as well as some in Kent County, but I always got the same excuse, "You don't have any experience." Now I am working on moving out of my parents' house. I had my own apartment once before in 1998, but I was only there ten days; my mother said if I didn't move back home, she would have me claimed incompetent. I didn't want to argue, so I moved back home. Now I am associated with state services, so I will be provided with help when I need it. I have my sights set on East Providence though; I want to get the hell out of Woonsocket. I figured East Providence isn't too far away, but it's far enough where the folks won't be dropping by on a daily basis. A lot of my friends from the National Federation For The Blind Of Rhode Island live in East Providence, so I will have them nearby too.
