Rakeb Max returns to the Blind Abilities studio to share what she has learned since entering her first year of college at Providence college. Last summer Rakeb joined us to talk about her college transition plans and the steps she was taking to ensure she chose the right college.
Rakeb did choose Providence college and talks about how the realities and expectations are not always the same and how she is adjusting to her new location. Rakeb wrote a letter to the editor about some of the questions she gets asked and basically broke it down for everyone to understand that she is just Rakeb, that girl with the long white cane.
Join Rakeb Max in this brief and insightful interview and hear about what Rakeb is doing to make her presence known. Look out Providence College, Rakeb Max is on the campus.
