Inspirational teenager Molly Watt has been invited to speak at a prestigious American university.
Molly has Usher Syndrome and as a result is registered deaf-blind. She has extremely limited hearing and eyesight.
During her teenage years she has posted videos on YouTube explaining what it is like to grow up with the condition.
She has been invited to speak at the International Symposium on Usher Syndrome at Harvard Medical School, in Harvard University, Boston on Saturday, July 12.
Molly, from Oldacres, has already been invited to speak at events in Edinburgh, Westminster and New Jersey this year.
The 19-year-old is now trying to raise money to pay the airfare for her, her mum and her guide dog Unis to attend the event.
Molly's school, Strodes College in Surrey, has pledged £250 towards the estimated £2,000 cost.
Her mum, Jane, said: "It's just an awesome place to go to let alone speak."
