or can have on a community."

Meet a YO! Volunteer…
Hello all! My name is Travis Nichols. I am a 19-year-old blind individual from California. From the age of 10 to the age of 18 I attended the California School for the Blind located in Fremont, California. While there, I gained extensive experience working with youth and adults alike that had multiple disabilities. I have, and always will, enjoy helping and serving the disabled community to the best of my abilities. I am a simple man, but I am me. It is a pleasure to meet you all.
