In this episode, Emma talks to Abdullatif Ghazi who is originally from Kuwait and lost his sight at the age of 8. Abdul discusses his love of sport (in particular goalball) and how it played a huge part in him finding the welcoming VI community when he moved to the UK.

Abdul is also an avid musician and appeared on Arab's Got Talent 2017 along with guitarist Mohammed Jabbari. The duo's performance brought tears to the eyes of the judges and the crowd and won them the ‘Golden Buzzer’. This performance can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKaAtyuqa-c
