Blind Abilities Teen Correspondent, Simon Bonenfant presents this unique interview from only a perspective he can offer, one of close friendship. Marta Hanyzkiewicz shares her story of untold challenges which spans two continents.
From her difficult childhood growing up in Poland, to her academic achievements which include winning a scholarship awarded by The International Baccalaureate Educational Foundation, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. This brought Marta to the US for her first visit to study at a University in Iowa. Following her return to Poland, she suffered even more challenges but persevered to once again return to the states, where she found the NFB, met Simon and is currently studying in New York City.
Sit back and enjoy this short podcast and listen to Marta’s inspiring story of trials and triumphs, and her wonderful sharing attitude towards all with whom she comes into contact.
