A student in the college’s administrative assistant and office management program, Brandon hopes to work at a hospital helping people get through paper work with ease.  Brandon, who has been blind since birth has seen first-hand the amount of paper work that faces individuals.

“I’ve seen all the work my parents have done to help me and I want to help others,” he said.
