Being blind on social media - my story and the world’s starting to listen

21 Mar 2024
Main Stage
Community experiences , Lifestyle & Independent Living

We live in a sighted world, not made for someone like Lucy. Join Lucy Edwards as she explores what social media is like for a screen reader user and deep dive into how social media is making the world more aware of blindness. Lucy lost her eyesight at 17 years old, 11 years ago, and she chats about how the world has changed and how brands are starting to sit up and take notice. Come to this interactive session.
