Volunteering at GDS has given me various insights as to what people with vision impairment are capable of doing. I am constantly amazed by the tenacity they show and how, with the right resources (like guide dogs, good orientation and mobility skills, supportive family and friends), they are able to live a meaningful life and fulfil their aspirations. I have also enjoyed working alongside the team of board directors and staff, and am grateful for what they have taught me and the friendships we have forged over the years.
