Many disabled people face challenges in the workplace, writes Zlata Rodionova. But Caroline Casey is trying to change that with her Valuable 500 initiative
Caroline Casey was born legally blind but she didn’t know her vision was severely impaired until she was 17.
“I was diagnosed with ocular albinism at six months but my parents brought me up not knowing because they didn’t want me to be defined by a medical condition. I found out about it when I went to the eye specialist at 17 and mentioned that I wanted to get my driver’s licence,” Ms Casey tells The Independent.
The Irish entrepreneur might have never learnt how to drive but she never let her limited eyesight hold her back from success. Now she’s on a mission to put disability on the global business agenda.
