Blind High School Student Gives Back To Her Community Through Knitting

Some people just get ‘IT’.  Aspen Poole is one of those people.

At 19 years old the High School senior who was born blind, has obsessive-compulsive disorder and is on the autism spectrum still finds a way to fill her day honing skill sets while also giving back to her local community.

Her story is one that is truly inspiring and is a good reminder that circumstances should not define you as an individual or member of your community.
