My name is Cecilia Vasconcellos. I am Brazilian and a psychologist. I am 28 years old and I discovered LCA RDH 12 in my first year of life. My family and friends have always supported me during my degenerative visual loss and helped me with adapted ways of living. Currently, I work at a referral center in São Paulo and live daily with people with IRD. There is no greater gratification. Looking at both sides of the story personally and professionally.
