Ana Sikhashvili spent a year in Minnesota attending the Minnesota State Academy for the Blind (MSAB)through a student exchange program called, Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX). Ana is definitely a leader and her future is looking very bright as she is now attending University in the Republic of Georgia.
Ana’s experiences in the United States and especially her experiences at MSA B and the programs she attended through State Services for the Blind (SSB) have made an impact on her in such a positive light that she intends to bring to light what she has gained to her native country of the Republic of Georgia.
Ana talks about what life as a person with a disability is like and how being someone who happens to be blind navigates University especially through these challenging times of the Pandemic.
Ana is sharing her experiences with her community and intends to make a difference in her country through advocating and by reaching her goal in becoming a politician so her voice can carry the message for those not being heard.
Join Ana Sikhashvili and Jeff Thompson in the Blind Abilities Studio for a very informative blindness perspective from the Republic of Georgia.
