12 days with blindness

Yes, we’re a company that’s aware of how living with a visual disability presents some challenges, the pandemic has developed social distancing which made many of us forget what it means to not see day in and day out. We had a team building, which basically is a reunion with every team member within Sunu. It was amazing because for two entire weeks we moved into a house far from the city and its respective chaos.

Art and visual impairment

From a very young age, I was interested in art, especially music and to be more specific, the piano was the first instrument that caught my attention. It should be noted that I was never interested in music because of this well-known stereotype that people with visual disabilities have good ears and that is why they dedicate themselves to music. I was interested in its complexity and in some way at 8 years old, I related its keys to the keys of the computer that I used for my academic development.
