For our first podcast series we will hear from people who are blind or low vision as part of the #BlindAbroad campaign.

The National Clearinghouse on Disability & Exchange (NCDE), a project sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by MIUSA, launched the #BlindAbroad campaign Summer 2015 to increase the participation of people who are blind or low vision in international exchange. We hear the stories from Americans and international particpants who are blind or low vision that have studied abroad. 

From being one of the first Fulbright students from Colombia to study in the United States to canyoning in Costa Rica, we hope the heart of the stories resonates with you the listeners to empower more people with disabilities to go abroad.
