      Hi, Jennifer! Thank you for your YouTube Video. I'm a Teacher of the Visually Impaired. I'm hoping to discuss your choices of assistive technology, because the parents of some of my students don't agree with me that computer skills are more critical than some other forms of AT. Thank you. -Steve

      Jennifer has an uplifting and appreciative attitude towards life when she could so easily be jaded, resentful, and negative. What a beautiful example of what the human spirit can accomplish. Jennifer has a new fan in Cleveland Ohio.
