Impact On Your Life
It has made my life hard, but I don'’t really remember how it feels to have good sight. So I don’'t really think about it. Even though I have Stargardt disease, it won’'t stop me from drawing and becoming better at my art.

Adaptations
I mostly use a magnifying glass for paper writing, and Zoomtext on my computer.

Employment
I'm going to college to get my degree in graphic design.

More About Me
I love anime [art] and anything about Japan. I am studying Japanese and hope to go there some day.
