Voices of CSE: Songwon Oh, '19

Songwon Oh, '19, was a junior in high school when she became legally blind. After suffering unexpected retinal detachment in both of her eyes, Oh's sight was irreparably damaged.

"There are so many negative perceptions about people with disabilities. Sometimes society deems us incapable and incompetent," says Oh. "But people with disabilities are just human beings who have a different way of navigating our world. That doesn't mean we aren't capable of accomplishing anything we want in life."

Inspired by the support and assistance she received immediately after losing her sight, Oh decided to pursue a degree in sociology from the College of Saint Elizabeth.
