How did you cope with losing your sight?
I remember, with 100% clarity, being at cricket practice, walking home and the sun setting on a lovely evening. I went to sleep and the next morning I couldn’t see a thing. I knew this was potentially life-changing and yet I remember having a very strange, calm feeling, almost like being at the centre of a storm. The day I came out of hospital I knew, even at 14 years old, that whatever happened now was down to me. Knowing I had support from my parents and siblings was amazing, but fundamentally I realised that if I didn’t push myself, none of the things I wanted to achieve would happen.
