Molly is the young lady that has got a rare genetic disorder called Usher Syndrome type 2 which means she was born severely deaf and at the age of 12 she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), an eye condition that causes night blindness, glare blindness and tunnel vision.
Since introducing Molly to you… things have progressed. Molly has become a celebratory in her own right. One example of this is that the BBC See Hear production team has been in contact with her and over the last couple of days they have been filming “a day in the life of Molly”.
The BBC See Hear production team filmed Molly whilst she gave a talk all about life with Usher Syndrome to all of our first and second year Strode’s students. The team also interviewed members of staff and fellow students to capture their reaction to the talk and their thoughts on Molly and her work raising awareness for Usher’s Syndrome.
Later this week the BBC will also be filming Molly at home in order to share first-hand with the viewers the challenges Molly faces in the everyday tasks most of us take for granted.
Please watch this space and we will post details of when the show will be aired so you can show your support for this amazing young lady.
