I recommend this book to anyone interested in inspirational reading. Ms. Charalambakos demonstrates creativity and spirit throughout her childhood and young adulthood not allowing her blindness or family challenges from traveling the world and being of encouragement to others. She also challenges prospective employers to look beyond blindness for the capabilities each person has to offer.
