My Unforeseen Journey
Losing Sight Gaining Vision
~ Author Melanie Taddeo-Nxumalo
My Unforeseen Journey: Losing Sight Gaining Vision is the deeply moving story of a young woman, Melanie Taddeo-Nxumalo, whose life changes drastically after suffering a massive stroke that leaves her legally blind and completely paralyzed on her left side. Melanie, the author of this empowering narrative, imparts her experiences in a unique and inspiring way, providing profound insights for the reader to relate to in their own unforeseen journeys.

After years of therapy, Melanie was able to regain her independence and go on to become the first legally blind teacher to graduate in Ontario–now a certified special education teacher with over ten years of experience in program development, fundraising, community outreach, volunteer management, and public speaking.

Melanie is a force of nature. Her deep-seated belief in the potential of everyone inspires all around her. Especially me.
