Kannon — Guide / Hearing
Kannon & I are an unforgettable duo.
Her sophisticated Japanese name reflects the true meaning of the treasure she offers. It means observing for others, the sounds & cries of the world.
She empowers me with confidence, independence & courage; opening doors of opportunity to survive & thrive in the sighted world. With her I can Step out of my comfort zone & try new things. Together we stand up for compassion, diversity, justice, inclusion, solidarity, unity & peace.
