I'm Molly, a typical sushi, makeup, and fashion loving millennial girl who just so happens to be blind! I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at just 4 years old and began public speaking at age 5. I started just doing motivational speaking, but now I make videos and even model! Even though I can’t see, I know that there are bright spots in everything we face. Let’s find them together. 💕

💬 Comments on the video

As a blind women, I was once asked if I’m bi sexual because I can’t see the difference between men and women. I’m still recovering from that ignorant question

Edit: omg thank you all for such lovely supportive responses

Double edit: I still can’t believe I’m getting comments on this, thank you all!

I looked over at her make-up table and was like huh...why doesn't she have a mirror?

Molly: Gallup keep sleeping.
Gallup: I’m not in my harness you can’t tell me what to do, but since it’s a good idea I’m going to do it anyway.

Hi Molly, I have a question... Yesterday I saw a blind guy trying to cross a street and he didn't go in a straight line so he had a little trouble finding the end of the crosswalk to get on the sidewalk. I wanted to approach him and through your videos I know I could have offered him my elbow to grab, but I didn't know how to approach him without scaring him... Any tips for another similar situation?

PS: If anyone reading this comment doesn't mind I would really appreciate if you can give it a like so there are more probabilities of Molly seeing this. Thanks

'can I pray for you?'

Me: I would really like to win the lottery

I am a Christian and was raised as one. Yes I went through a particularly tough time in my life where I was sick. I looked sick, I felt sick, shoot, I probably walked sick. I had cancer. I can not tell you how offended I was on the inside every time some came up to me and asked if they could pray for me. for one, I don't know you and secondly thanks for reminding me how sick I look. Lastly if you really felt I needed prayer so badly then just do it, why even ask me? I don't know, if you ask me anyone who is asked "Can I pray for you" is just finding a reason to judge and feel they are better than someone else.

The prayer thing really bothers me too. It makes me feel awful tbh. (Not for vision loss but for other health issues.)

"So, no, I don't know your blind friend. But, also, still tell me their name because, um, I might know them" 😂

Most autistics feel that way to about not wanting to be “healed” because just because we are different it doesn’t mean we are suffering like someone with an eating disorder or chorionic pain

I have a hearing disability and can’t listen to audio books, would you ever consider publishing it as a physical copy?

I know that trick too like Gallop. "Keep sleeping."

Sorta unrelated, but my friend and a blind person walked into each other recently (no one fell or anything as dramatic as that) and she immediately apologised "omg I'm so sorry I didn't see you!" and the blind guy just went "I didn't see you either" and I started laughing, but my friend was horrified 😂 She thought she'd insulted him. Anyway, I referred her to your channel so she could see there's really nothing she did wrong and learn some more things. Love your channel Molly, I think these kind of videos are great, but I especially love the balance on your channel between just doing fun things and talking about blindness x

Yh I am in the foster system and someone saying number 5 is one of the worst things you could say to a human being

what if someone had no idea a person was adopted and said “you’re lucky your parents kept you”

"Do you know my blind friend?" Its basic the same as "Do you know my gay friend" osv osv.. I have heard that before..
