Stephanae McCoy

Founder, Bold Blind Beauty

Prior to my sight loss, my personal and career successes continued to mount. I scored a huge promotion from the Big Four accounting firm where I was employed. I married my best friend and extraordinary carpenter who was also renovating my first house. Everything was coming together and I had big plans for an even brighter future.

After I lost my sight my confidence level dropped and I struggled to come to terms with my life as a blind woman. Feelings of isolation, fear and depression overwhelmed me and halted my dreams.

As a lifelong abilities crusader who fought for the rights of both my son and mother, I didn’t know how to self-advocate. Immersing myself in the blind community was the turning point in my blindness journey.
