“Refining my Vision” is the online journal of Eric & Rachael – two client bloggers – who are currently going through Bosma Enterprises’ Center-Based Services. Here Eric & Rachael openly express their journey through a sighted world as a person who is blind or as a person who is experiencing a recent loss of vision.
Hello, my name is Eric.
I am currently a student going through Bosma’s Center-Based Services. Prior to attending Bosma, I worked for many years within the financial services industry. I am from Fort Wayne, Indiana, where I live with my beautiful wife of 18 years. While at Bosma, I plan to gain the functional and adaptive skills to once again feel productive and independent. When not redefining my vision, I enjoy books, cooking, and all manner of water sports.
Hi, I’m Rachael.
I am amazing, enough said about me. I am kidding. I have truly enjoyed the outdoors ever since I was a little girl. To me… there is nothing like a home cooked meal, which I hardly ever had while I was in my undergraduate. It wasn’t until I got my own apartment before I started grad school, that I regularly got a home cooked meal. I will try everything and anything at least once. I would rather smile and be positive then be mad and angry about my visual impairment. I will talk to anyone and believe, if I don’t make one person smile a day, I didn’t accomplish anything. My passion is working with children and others with special needs. As for getting to know me, all one has to do is just ask.
