I was born with nystagmus and always struggled at school both in the classroom and in PE. All throughout my education it’s been a continuous trip to the printer to enlarge text books and print outs. Things didn’t really change at college. I was told I had dyslexia which could be linked to the nystagmus, because of the way my brain is seeing the words. I was offered support sessions to look at alternative methods of learning. I then went on to university and this year I am graduating! I have studied law for the past three years and in September will be going on to train as a barrister. I anticipate many challenges due to nystagmus such as mock court situations. Reading facial expressions and looking at evidence may be challenging, but nystagmus won’t stop me.
