I am 18 years old and live in Savannah, Georgia. I have Retinitis Pigmentosa which reduces my vision in dim light and reduces my peripheral vision a bit. I currently attend Georgia Southern University and will be attending Georgia State University in the fall. I plan to transfer to Georgia Tech the following year. Later this month, I will be moving up to Atlanta to live up with my middle brother Alex. I enjoy watching baseball constantly, either on television or, my favorite, going to the ballpark. My goal is to visit every single major league baseball park in the country. My high school graduation trip involved eight games in ten days in five different cities. We also mixed in a couple of days at Cedar Point and believe I could spend my entire life on a rollercoaster.

I love watching college football and I have also started to follow soccer where my favorite team is Atlanta United. Some of my fondest memories growing up are the many trips down to Disney World to ride the rides and then go see Braves spring training games. Next week, Dad and I will be playing, and my family will be attending, the Sam’s Scramble for Sight golf event benefiting the Institute for Vision Research.
