Dear Cricket:
It was a pleasure getting to know you at the national convention.  Your talk
was one of the more inspirational ones on the agenda.  It is so rewarding to
hear a young person express a desire to give back instead of take, take,

Students (CABS)
I know she will see this message and get in touch with you.  

Please apply for the California Scholarship Program.  The application will
be out this week.  I can already recommend that you keep your calendar clear
for the weekend of October 21, 22 and 23 so you can attend the California
convention at the Embassy Suites South Hotel  LAX.  The focus this year will
be on young people and you are definitely one of them.

All the Best-
Mary Willows

The National Federation of the blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future.  Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. 
You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Hi All,

I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Cricket Bidleman... Some of you may
remember me from convention. I live in Morro Bay, which is on the central
coast halfway between San Diego and San Francisco. (A more common landmark
is San Luis Obispo, which is the nearest large-ish
town.) I'm seventeen, so I'm just about to apply for college. I'm also
hoping to become more involved in the NFB in general, as I have recently
attended some of the STEM programs. Hopefully I'll be able to make it down
to the California convention in October as well. Feel free to email me on or

Cricket X. Bidleman
