Josh and his family smile for the camera.

Thank you, Josh

Josh can’t see rain – can you? Josh was born with nystagmus and ocular albinism, but he hasn’t let that hold him back. Josh has been a primary school teacher for 7 years, completed his masters, got grade 8 piano and regularly sings in City of Birmingham Choir at Symphony Hall.

Josh has some very reassuring words for parents: “If you have a child who has just been diagnosed with nystagmus they will be fine. I promise you that you will worry about it and notice it more than they will and they’ll constantly surprise you with how well they cope.”

For his wisdom alone, Josh is a hero, but what he told us about rain made everyone take notice. He said: “I only found out a couple of years ago that people can see rain. I’d always assumed it was invisible to everyone.”

Thank you for sharing, Josh.
