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. 💕

Sounds like the Toronto airport needs to get their act together when it comes to accessibility.

The amount of assistance provided was not even close to adequate.

Dear Molly. Just to let you know that the “less glamorous” as you say, and therefore more “deep” video are those who actually interest me, and the reason I watch your channel.

I totally understand the not “looking disabled”... it sucks. Cause I’m like, do you need my medical sheets printed to my forehead?! It’s super annoying. Thanks for sharing your lifestyle

"They don't want to sit with this big guy by them" UM FALSE. I would die of happiness and let him have as much room as he wants.

Literally if a blind person comes up to me and says something like “hey I’m blind, can you help me get to I’ll help so if you stopped and asked me to take you to a restaurant I would

I get stressed traveling alone without being blind. God I can't imagine it.

"One of the issues I face when I travel alone is I don't look blind. And because of all the stereotypes and misconceptions that society holds about what you have to look like to be disabled... I don't fit that narrative. It means that often times when I'm alone I have to constantly advocate for myself and I can't even see the people around me."

I relate to this so much. I'm so tired of being told I don't look blind because I wear eyeglasses. Blindness does not mean complete vision loss. I wish more people understood this.

I just discovered your channel and as a flight attendant this was enlightening as to what blind people deal with just getting to my plane. I would love to know what you appreciate and dont appreciate from flight attendants. Thankfully my airline has open seating so 99% of the time my blind passengers pick the first row for bulkhead seats so they/ their dogs have more space and it's easy to find. I can see how hard that would be to find some random row. My heart went out to you when you were left alone during that delay! 😫

Your phone really is putting you on blast. “Large face”. That’s so untrue but made me giggle a little.

Years ago I traveled with my grandma who is blind and deaf in one ear. I was only 15 at the time. She had planned the whole trip, and was supposed to have the wheelchair and escort. But none of the help ever happened, So 15 year old me who had never been on a plane or in an airport before had to figure out everything we needed to do and navigate everything. It was so scary for both of us. I still remember how stressful it was when I had to go through the security check first, and then they took her cane to scan through the machine, and she was having a really hard time going through the check without it but they wouldn't let me help, so I had to just stand there and wait at the other end. Luckily we made It where we needed to go, but it was a terrible experience.

You're allowed to be "not the most positive", that would be sickening, boring and fake. You make me want to go up to everyone in an airport and ask, "Are you blind? Do you need Starbucks?"
