JOIN Seema Flower - Blind Entrepreneur who won the London 2018 Venus Award for "Inspirational Woman of the Year"

Tune in on Friday to Mid-Morning Matters at 11am, to hear Seema Flower, the Blind Entrepreneur, who won the London 2018 Venus Award for "Inspirational Woman of the Year"

Living with the knowledge that you'll eventually go blind is a hefty weight to bear. And Seema Flower has borne it better than most. At the tender age of 10, Seema discovered that she suffered from a progressive eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa. Since her diagnosis, her eyesight has gradually deteriorated to the point where she now has just 4% vision.

But the 46-year-old hasn’t let her visual impairment stop her from succeeding in life, in fact, quite the opposite.

Seema is now the owner of award-winning salon ColourNation and ambassador for the charity RP Fighting Blindness.
