In the Blind Abilities Studio, Hannah Harriman sits down with Jeff Thompson to talk about her academic and employment journey. From her early days and her Individual Education Plan (IEP) In Grade School to her Individual Plan for Employment (IPE) as she attended the Summer Transition Program, MN State Academy for the Blind and went off to college to her two current jobs, Hannah is excited about her future.
Hannah’s parents had high expectations and allowed her to take charge of her future through her IEP meetings and her decisions on her educational goals. Hannah never doubted her college education and she talks about how she prepared and advanced through her transition and employment goals. Her high expectations and self-determination has made a world of difference as she handles two jobs in the career that she wanted.
