Their American journey will continue with stops in Boston and New York.

Speaking of this significant collaboration, Junior Blind of America President and CEO, Miki Jordan, commented, "This has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these young adults to learn from each other and inspire each other, while continuing to break the barriers of vision loss."

Sybil Robson Orr of Robson Entertainment continues, "During the making of 'Blindsight,' I was astounded to hear of the bravery and courage of these teenagers. We are delighted, with the support of Junior Blind of America, to provide this opportunity to this fearless group."
