My name is Emily Wollum. I have low vision caused by Albinism (like those cute albino bunnies) and high myopia. When I was 12, started Kardz 4 Kidz because I needed an iPad at school to help me access the materials in class. My parents and teachers tried to find a way for me to get an iPad, but there weren’t any grants available for my type of disability. My parents challenged me to find a way to raise the money myself, so I came up with Kardz 4 Kidz. My goal is not only to raise money for my own iPad, which I bought in 2013, but to buy technology for other students who are unable to get what they need.
Currently I am very close to being able to buy an iPad for another student. I haven’t been able to come up with any paintings in recent years, but I have recently discovered a love for photography. I was never very happy with how my drawings and paintings came out, but I am extremely proud of the photos I’ve taken in the past year. I want to continue selling popular painting designs but also open a new collection of cards for my photos.
