The students at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually-Impaired (ISBVI) don't allow themselves to be defined by their visual impairments, and their inspiring stories helped raise a record amount of funding to fuel their art programs.
We love partnering with organizations who help make a difference in our community, like the Indiana Blind Children's Foundation (IBCF). The mission of the IBCF is to invest in children with visual impairments so each child will thrive in school and daily life.
Victoria Disque, Editor at 12 Stars Media, found editing this project particularly inspiring. "The students featured don't see their visual impairments as disadvantages; in fact, they use them as motivation to sing higher, play louder, and create more," expressed Disque. "Their passion is infectious, and I'm very proud to have had a part in bringing that to people's attention."
