Description

As blind students, we are encountering unique daily realities that often remain unrecognized or misunderstood by the people around us. The Maryland Association of Blind Students in conjunction with the National Association of Blind Students is thrilled to invite you to embark on a journey to discover “Who Am I? Who Are You? Who Are We”? Join us as we explore these questions through our shared experiences with students from all over the region. It will be an engaging weekend packed with opportunities to challenge your perceptions and network with blind peers and mentors alike.

You can expect a mix of interactive activities, thought-provoking conversations, and riveting presentations—with topics covering everything from securing accommodations to finding identity as a blind person. Ultimately, this journey promises to empower you to identify new ways of living the life you want. Regardless of where you are in your education journey, we hope you’ll join us for a weekend of growth and fun!
