As a YouTuber and motivational speaker, Molly shares it all—from personal stories to beauty tips to mental health and anti-bullying advocacy. And she just happens to be blind. Molly started to lose her sight when she was just 4 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her from fighting for inclusivity and accessibility for all. Her real power is acceptance.

Throughout her journey, Molly found a way to view blindness as a gift:

“I am able to take people for who they are and not judge them for what they look like. I get to see the real person, the inside of them, before making any judgements.”

“My personal style is anything that is unique. Anything most people wouldn’t wear, I’m going to rock it!”

“Once I loved myself because I was actually being genuine and authentic to who I am, that’s the moment I actually started making more genuine connections with people and more genuine friendships, because the people I was meeting actually knew Molly.”
