My name is Hajar Albattah-Thompson. I’m 29 years old and I have visual impairment. I am totally blind in my right eye, and I have very limited vision in my left eye. I have a bachelor degree of psychology and a minor in disability studies and Arabic language. From University of Oregon.
Since graduation, I worked in several dance performances between stage and dance films.
I am a performer since I was a child. I loved acting and playing music on stage.
I am a curious person, and always like to learn new things and experience different things in life.
