One of my biggest fears after losing my sight was the inability to provide for my family, and I questioned myself: What am I going to do with my life? What’s going to happen in a year or five years? How am I going to help raise my seven-year-old son? My prayers were answers by a phone call from one of the socials worker at the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. I was told not to fear, that with the proper training that they could offer I should be able to perform and carry on like any normal person. And I did. I completed the rehabilitation program and enrolled to become a Midi Music producer. Needless to say, Miami Lighthouse helped me accomplish this. Now, seven years later I’m working as the Director of the Midi Music Production program at Miami Lighthouse for the Blind helping others achieve their goals to become musicians, score writers, radio station audio engineers, pre- and post-sound producers, stage performers, studio sound recorder engineers or use their music production abilities for other sources that involve the use of access technology. All I can say is that my life is been placed back on track because of the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, and I consider it my second home.
