Hi everyone, 

I’m Claire and I have been visually impaired from birth. I have about 10% vision with a small visual field and can see shapes and colours.

I studied Languages and Philosophy as an undergraduate (including an Erasmus year abroad in Salamanca, Spain which was lots of fun) and then did a Masters in Translation and Interpreting.

I now work as a technical translator for a software company.

In my spare time, I enjoy the thrill of rock-climbing (both indoor and outdoor), discovering places and meeting new people.
