my mum is insperational. she is registered blind but that has not stopped her from doing anything, as a baby she was not expected to live but she proved the doctors wrong. she has brought me up on her own as well as working. she has tought many children in penzance to read whilst working in local schools. she now works as a pre school school leader but has kept her sight status to herself. she also runs an art club, on a voluntery basis, for local children. my mum doesn't see herself as having a sight problem and even did a parachute jump to raise money for the local blind association. to most she may not seem an inspiration but if they knew her story i'm sure they would change thier minds.
