Featuring: Lucy Edwards - Born December 18, 1995


Opening Statement:

Lucy Edwards is truly an inspiration not only to the blind disabled community in the UK, but around the world. As a blind person, Lucy promotes her dedication on “Changing How the World Views Blindness.” She is a Content Creator, Disability Activist, Broadcaster, and a former Law Student until she needed to drop out of law school because of stress and her mental health. After dropping out of law school, Lucy decided to become a journalist. It was amazing to read and learn more about Lucy and her sister who has Autism. Lucy feels she is her sisters voice and her sister is her mirror and eyes. Lucy learned to communicate for them both, even though she couldn’t see.

Lucy’s Shocking Statement

What more can I say except…I was blown away after reading the many articles written about Lucy. I often view her YouTube and TikTok videos. She does not give up with spreading awareness about blindness and that there is no need to give up on anything, especially yourself!
