NWABA athlete, Alaina G., was introduced to NWABA through her Orientation & Mobility (O&M) Specialist in2018. She was able to secure the last open spot at Camp Spark that year and has attended ever since.
Alaina also participates in NWABA’s high performance soccer and goalball skills camp, as well as Camp winter session for transition-aged youth. Alaina’s family has seen her blossom from a shy young camper to an outgoing, independent person and skilled athlete. This past summer, Alaina was back at Camp Spark as a Counselor in Training, helping other youth with visual impairments learn new skills, gain independence, and find community.
“This organization is Alaina’s lifeline. She is so lonely all year. People treat her with a dismissive preciousness that is dehumanizing and deeply painful. NWABA gives her so much; community, a place to just be herself, a place to see her amazingness reflected back to her, a place to be with others like her. I am unspeakably grateful.”
