Hi, I am Jessica; my friends call me Yessie. I am from North Carolina, and I am the creator of the Blinkie Chicks. I love technology, and I believe it has the power to drastically improve quality of life for all people, especially those with disabilities. I am passionate about advocacy, especially self-advocacy, and changing society’s perceptions of blind and visually impaired people. I love my family, friends, and my dog. I enjoy writing and making videos about technology, traveling, and spending time with loved ones. I believe laughter is the best medicine.
