Disability: Doing drag makeup with a sight impairment
“Being blind isn’t my entire personality, but it definitely influences every single thing I do.”
Jake Sawyers, 27, from Port Talbot, was born severely sight impaired but he has not let this stop him achieving his dreams.
As his alter-ego Venetia Blind he entertains, as well as educates audiences about what it is like to live as a disabled person.
His condition makes applying makeup generally challenging and “nigh on impossible” for one of his eyes, but he said it was “all about problem solving”.
