Skateboards, sight loss and speaking out with Brett Devloo
When Brett Devloo lost his sight at 17, he hopped on his skateboard and made a plan: keep going and do what he loves. Now he's making music videos, a clothing line, and running a non-profit to donate iPads to kids with sight loss. Listen as Brett talks about "doing things that don't make sense" and how he plans to change the world. [Photo description: a headshot of Brett Devloo, who is smiling and wearing sunglasses and a headband. He's looking up to the left and the background is pale purple.] Photo courtesy Brett Devloo.
