Meet Susan and Ted, RSB alumni.
"Don't be afraid to be yourself. Be grateful about everything!""I became vision-impaired when I was about 13 years old. I woke up one day and I just couldn’t see the blackboard or the reading book very well. My vision decided to go about 10 years later. I’ve had about three guide dogs. My latest is Ted, a black labrador who’s four years old.

"I loved school. When I was 14, I went to Townsend House, a school for the blind and deaf. I lived in one of the cottages with 10 other people. It was good for me. I was very shy, so this school helped my confidence. We went camping, kayaking, canoeing and did other adventurous activities. They taught us that blindness is just a small hurdle.

"I started my Big Issue journey in December of 2020. On my first shift, another visually impaired vendor gave me a couple more magazines and stood with me. He told me to slow down my voice and to breathe in and out and just relax.

"The Big Issue is very good because I’m learning to get around the CBD by myself. I’m also getting my confidence up and earning money, and I like that I’m communicating to different customers.

"I have a pretty simple philosophy: don’t be afraid to be yourself. Be grateful about everything!"

Susan and Ted sell The Big Issue at The Body Shop on Rundle Mall, Adelaide. Read the full story here: thebigissue.org.au/vendor/susan-and-ted/
