Please allow me this proud mommy brag blog post.
Earlier this summer, my Marley was asked to be one of three student speakers on a panel at the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children meeting at the 2019 NFB National Convention. With very little coaching from her mommy, she wrote her speech on her Braille note taker,and gave an excellent presentation.
I was not quick enough at pressing record and missed the first sentence or so. She began by saying, “my name is Marley Rupp. I am nine years old, and will be going into the fourth grade this fall.”
Here is the rest of her speech…
Wow, Terri. Marley is brilliant! I know and have no doubts that she, your son, and many more kids out there have great and promising futures ahead of them. I’m looking forward to hearing more success stories and adventures of your children and your family in the future.
