Amy L. Bovaird is an educator, an author and inspirational speaker—who happens to be vision impaired. When she was 28, doctors diagnosed her with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)-a degenerative eye-disease that eventually causes blindness. Later, she learned her RP was part of Usher’s Syndrome, the leading cause of deaf blindness.
Having taught in Latin America, South East Asia and the Middle East, Amy often features these cultures in her writing.
Although Amy suffers from a dual disability, she continues to enjoy running, hiking and traveling. She also volunteers with local and national animal rescue organizations. She dips into humor and optimism as she blogs about the challenges she faces as she loses more vision and hearing. But more importantly, Amy shares the lessons God reveals to her through her difficulties. You can read about her experiences at www.amybovaird.com.
