Review for MIAMI LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED, INC., Miami, FL, USA
My Name is Luz Marina Rosenfeld, I lost my vision about 19 months ago. I felt my life ended, when I went there, I meet Virginia Jacko, she is my mentor, she put me in the right road to be a profesional. I went back to College, graduate and License, now I do Events that raise money for the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually impaired. They show me my life can change without vision, in the begining it was hard but YOU go there and they teach you, and the Technology is out of this world. The Teachers are so compacionated and exemplary that you feel yes, you can see without vision, it sounds strange but I see now more than before. Cannot find the words to say THANKS FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK, I GAIN MY INDEPENDENCE, AND LOVING LIFE MORE THAN BEFORE. The Miami Lighthoue is the perfect place when you loose your vision, they are prepare to give you skill, tools and all the help that you need to be incharge of your life again, going out again with my guide dog, she is my car and the freedom that a human being need after such a Catastrofic experience. I could sit here and right all day how much they did for me and they continue changing lifes, they change mine and I love them for the rest of my life. Love you Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually impaired. As I go with my life you start saying how do I do all this things without vision, like cooking, baking, taking care of my family, going to school and keeping up with getting good grades and being the best you can be. They taugh me a great lesson, you can do what ever you can do with your life, and have change my life around, has change my City adding Talking Lights, explain, they talk and aware you when to cross the street, and we can cross how they taugh us, going by the flow of the cars. is so wonderful that I will never stop talking about, My City Doral has installed 8 in my City of Doral, with the help of Virginia Jacko the CEO, and Mobility Instructor Manager Mr, John Platt.
