Her Voice Guided Me

Her Voice Guided Me was my senior thesis project that brought awareness to visually impaired students and explored new ways of seeing. I collaborated with my chosen student partner to help each other see differently.

My student partner, India, and I created two books together, in standard type and braille: the first, My Blind Adventure, is a four-part autobiography that tells the story of this inspiring student, the second, see clearly from a distance, colors, is a collection of valuable perspectives I gained through this collaboration.

The books resulted in a successful partnership that shared stories of a transformative creative collaboration. Visit the University of Michigan's Special Collections Library to experience the project.
