Jeffrey Crouch and his twin brother were born with blindness. It meant he could not have the luxury of a traditional education setting due to accessibility issues. Mr. Crouch attended the Great Lakes Cyber Academy, an online program; and, after graduation, he had hoped to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology. Unfortunately, a medical emergency would stand in his way, ultimately prompting Jeffrey to choose a new career path.
He now plans to begin a 9-month program to learn how to help other blind people regain their freedom.
"I'm going to Louisiana Center for the Blind to do an apprenticeship in orientation and mobility, which is teaching blind people how to use a white cane and have independence to travel anywhere they want," said Crouch
