the Blind Social Talk list!

 Hi Friends,
This just showed up on the NFB of PA list, and I thought some of our younger
members might want to know about it and spread the word.

Hi all,



 My name is Desiree Oudinot, and I am writing to announce the creation of a
new listserv for blind teens and young adults. Called Blind Social Talk, it
is designed to be a safe haven for young people to discuss the many problems
we face, from dating and relationships, to stress, fitting in with peers,
student life, and many other topics, as they relate to blindness. While it
is accepted that every person goes through some of these problems in his or
her day-to-day life, blindness can sometimes complicate these already
confusing issues.
This list will serve as a mentoring service, where blind teens and young
adults can communicate with each other and share their stories, experiences,
and advice.
If you are, or know someone who falls into this category, you may send a
blank message to blind-social-talk-subscribe at yahoogroups.com
<mailto:blind-social-talk-subscribe%40yahoogroups.com>  to join. Upon
receipt of your request, you will be asked to provide a short description of
yourself and why you wish to join the list. Feel free to pass this
information along to those who you think may benefit. If you have any
questions or concerns, please write me off-list at turtlepower17 at gmail.com
<mailto:turtlepower17%40gmail.com> .
