November 20, 2013: Guide Dogs for the Blind


I am very grateful for Guide Dogs for the Blind (GDB). GDB is one of the best guide dog schools across the world. Their main campus is located in San Rafael, California and their other site is in Portland, Oregon. This is the site Makiko and i met and were trained at. The organization is run purely on donations and it is such a worthwhile cause. It gives so many individuals with visual impairments each year their independence (back), their freedom (back), and such companionship. It has given me that and so much more in Makiko and the people I have met, and the opportunities I have had because of her. She helps me through so much and allows me to do so much, all thanks to Guide Dogs for the Blind and the wonderful people who donate to this organization.

Today, and everyday, I am grateful for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Jessica N and Makiko

Jessica is a proud Texan. She graduated in 2014 with her Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and is now employed. She is visually impaired and has a retinal disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa. Originally Jessica started blogging about everything from being diagnosed with the disease to where she is now, almost 9 years later. Then, Jessica went to Guide Dogs for the Blind and was blessed with Makiko, her new guide dog. Now, her blog "The Way Eye See The World" is about everything related to visual impairments, including guide dogs.
