Project by Niki Walker
Mylasia Blocker is a typical 12-year-old girl. Kind, funny, and genuinely curious, she is unbelievably easy to like. Her bedroom is small and ferociously pink. She dreams of graduating from high school and going on to college, and she would be the first person in her family to do so. Despite her love for color and fashion, there is something that sets Mylasia apart: she is visually impaired.
Mylasia was born blind, with optic nerve hypoplasia, or underdeveloped optic nerves. She was never supposed to see. Her mother fears she may lose her eyesight completely.
Presented are two edits for this project, which were made a year apart.
