Teenager Molly Watt speaks about Usher Syndrome at Harvard

Inspirational teenager Molly Watt spoke at Harvard University at an international conference on Usher Syndrome.

 

Molly, who is going to university herself this September, took centre stage at the Usher Symposium held at the elite university in Boston between Wednesday July 9 and Sunday, July 13.

The 19-year-old has Usher Syndrome, a rare condition which causes deafness and extremely impaired vision.

On Saturday, July 12, she sat on a question-and-answer panel where she discussed personal Usher issues.

Molly, who also spoke at the Houses of Parliament in June, said: "We were each able to speak of our personal usher issues, there was passion, enthusiasm, humour, honesty and laughter.

"It was such a  pleasure to be invited to be part of such an amazing event with an audience of others with Usher Syndrome, their families, scientists, researchers and specialists."
