Interview with Alex (Guest Blog Post #17)

This guest post comes from my friend Alex on Twitter. She has an amazing blog and is active on Twitter. Be sure to check out her content. 🙂

  1. What is your name? Hi, my name is Alex.
  2. Who has inspired you the most in life and your blogging and or YouTube channel?  No one particularly inspired me to start blogging, I just started so I could write about what I’m passionate about or what I’m thinking.
  3. Besides writing or making YouTube videos, what do you like to do in your spare time? I love to do photography. I also love to go on adventures with family and friends.
  4. Name a bad habit that you have? Procrastination is a bad habit I haven’t been able to break yet.
  5. Name your best quality? My best quality would probably have to be compassion, I guess.
  6. If you could interview anyone living or dead who would that be and why? If would love to interview my favorite YouTuber Molly Burke. I find her channel inspirational and I love that she talks about the good sides and the bad of living with disabilities.
  7. What is your college major/minor? I’m majoring in Psychology
  8. What is the title of your blog or YouTube channel, and when did you start blogging? The title of my blog is ‘A. P. Livolsi’s Blog’, and I started my blog a few months ago.
  9. What is the name/cause of your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? I was born legally blind and I have other physical disabilities.
  10. How does your visual impairment (or other disability that you have) effect you on a daily basis?  Honestly, when people ask me how my disability affects day to day activities I am not quite sure how to answer. I just do what able-bodied people do. Get up, eat, get ready for the day, go to school, and do homework. I use a White Cane as a mobility device to help me get around. If I can’t see something or I need directions I just ask. I feel like a normal person, despite having disabilities.
  11. How do other people feel about your visual impairment (or other disability that you may have)? Family members and close friends really don’t care about my disabilities. It’s just a part of who I am. Occasionally someone at school or out when I’m walking will stop to ask respectful questions about my vision. The thing that annoys me is when people ask questions and don’t bother to listen to my answers. They just pity me for being legally blind. I don’t like being pitted because of it. I love myself the way I am and I wouldn’t change it.
  12. If you had to give one piece of advice to others about having a visual impairment (or other disability) what would that be? My advice to a person who, not just have disabilities, but are dealing with any issue that is not easily solved is to keep going. I see life like a book. One chapter may really suck, but the new chapter might be ten times better. You never know what can happen.
  13. Where can other people find you on social media? (please list and provide links):People can find me via Twitter @alexpl20me  and Via Instagram alex_blindphotographer    Alex’s  blog https://aplivolsiblogonline.wordpress.com
