VIDEO ABOUT ME
Hi, my holy good people,
My name is Merima Valentic and I m visually impaired young women. Doctors said to my parents I was born like that in the early morning 25.6.1989 in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I m able to see 30% on my left eye, and my right eye is not working at all! "SHAME ON MY EYE", I m joking but is the ruth I m 100% blind on my right eye.
When I was a baby just one ophthalmologist promised my parents that he is able to do surgery with success. But I must have 4 years to do surgery on my eyes.
But when I was 4 years old in my country Bosnia and Herzegovina started body civil war. My doctor's ophthalmologist was Orthodox Serbian, his name was Dr. Veljko Sladojevic. He was abducted and killed in 1992 by some bad paramilitary forces. That day was killed my chance to see on my eyes too. From 1992 - 1995 Bosnian doctors wanted to help me but in a place where was no: electricity, water, food, heating, anesthetics, and medicine surgery was out of the question. Sarajevo on constant attacks no chance to go abroad! I spend all the wartime in Sarajevo with my bad eyesight.
1998 I remember a time for school! After the war, I started attending school " Center for blind and visually impaired children and youth Sarajevo". In school, all the people were blind or visually impaired. We made jokes about our bad eyes, that was a happy time. I did not realize that I m different because of my eyes, I did not see that I m a person with special needs.
This was and still is the hardest time of my life.

I m 30 years old young women. Intelligent ambitious and in love with academics. My dream is to be an expert in medical law and health care jurisprudence. I m trying to go to conferences, I m a scholar.
I have at this moment a degree in Physiotherapy and rehabilitation. But I m studying law too at studying. All that I m doing is painful for my eyes because I don't have any low vision equipment! My sight is so damaged that reading is day by day harder.
