On Friday 3rd April, Georgia Hussey (Y10) spoke at a supporters conference for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). The event was held in Belfast Castle. 

Georgia highlighted the importance of support provided by the RNIB and the necessity for funding services. She gave a personal account of her journey since a diagnosis of albinism at 10 weeks old and being registered blind at 3 years old.

Georgia’s support from the RNIB has helped her become the independent young lady she is. Georgia is now planning to volunteer for RNIB becoming a mentor for younger children.
