Good Afternoon  Fellow Californians,
   It seems as if we have  many many things to be proud of after this
years National Convention in Orlando Florida, all of them  Worth
mentioning, and will be mentioned, I suspect, in the coming days.
  I wanted to share  just a little bit of it as it relates to myself,
but not to make too much of it, or  too little of it.
  On July 4, 2011,  I was elected unanimously as new 2nd Vice-
President of  the National Association of Blind Students.
 This  is something  that i consider a great  honor, to be elected by
my peers,   both fellow californians and nation-wide.   I care more
than anything about improving the lives of blind  students like
myself, and am excited to continue working   with my fellow nabs board
members, as well as my fellow board members on the California
Association of Blind Students  board.
 I am excited to continue  to work to bring together many  students
across the country, and to  help fellow California Students Discover
cabs.  At the end of the day, it’s about all of us doing all that we
can to support the efforts of the National Federation of the Blind, to
pitch in where we can and   change  for the better, the out look and
opportunities for the blind.
 Personally, this  opportunity means a lot to  me,  but to represent
our state is the hugest  thrill, and I  truly hope to represent all of
us well.
 In Service and  as a proud Californian

Darian smith
2nd Vice-President,  National Association of Blind Students
