Blind Ambition

GOOD Magazine and Microsoft have released a micro-documentary, Blind Ambition, chronicling the stories of two visually impaired students. 

Jeremy Poincenot, a student at SDSU, has become a world-champion golfer and works to raise awareness for the disease that caused his visual impairment. David Hayden, a student at ASU, has developed a technology that helped him earn his college degree, and has the potential to enable learning for millions of vision-impaired people around the world.

David and his invention competed last week in the Worldwide Finals of the Microsoft Imagine Cup, where his team placed second in the Software Design category. Learn how their stories have intertwined on the Imagine Cup Blog
