Our next episode of Foreseeable Future Facetime web series with our guest Kevin Brousard from US Association of Blind Athletes (USABA). Join our host Mark Farrell for a lesson in perseverance, endurance, and success beyond visual impairments.

Mark Farrell

Mark Farrell has heard that seemingly innocuous question “Are you blind?” many times… And while it can leave someone with a visual disability feeling inadequate or angry, Mark always responds politely, “No, I’m not blind, but I am visually impaired.” Mark developed a get-up-and go, optimistic outlook and seeks out activities which make him happiest. His optimism includes a passion for life and music, an appreciation for life’s little things: a hearty laugh, a good song, a delicious meal, a perfect sunny day, and a great bike race or triathlon. He works as a talk show host and on-camera personality, producing show topics as well as interviewing guests for his public affairs radio talk show and podcasts. www.markfarrellmotivation.com

Kevin Brousard

Born with a rare retinal disorder, Kevin has been legally blind since as far back as he can remember. The target of bullying and ridicule as a child due to his vision led him down a dark road of depression and anxiety. Eventually, Kevin found an outlet through the world of adaptive sports. In track and field, Kevin has amassed 3 world titles, 3 Pan American titles and the US Paralympic record in the discus. He also competed internationally for the USA Judo Paralympic team for 3 years. Kevin currently serves as the Programs and Finance Director for the US Association of Blind Athletes (USABA)..
