Working for To Be Like Me allows me to give people a glimpse into my life as a blind person. To be Like Me's mission is important because giving people the opportunity to get to know people with disabilities encourages the program participants to approach and include people with disabilities in their comunities.
Mary is a Dallas native. She is totally blind. When she’s not educating students at To Be Like Me, Mary assists with marketing and communication at Chick-fil-A. One of her favorite To Be Like Me memories is the time that she was recognized by a student that attended a To Be Like Me program while she was at work. Mary says that she, “felt proud that he would remember her after their short time together.” Mary enjoys singing in her church choir and leading a Bible Study Fellowship group. Some of her favorite ways to spend her free time are reading, playing games, and spending time with friends.
