A Triad teen says he refuses to let being visually impaired stand in his way.

In fact, he’s using lessons he’s learned to affect the lives of young children who have similar challenges.

Tracy’s Little Red Schoolhouse in Winston-Salem has an afterschool and summer program for children who are blind or visually impaired.

Shareff Stewart knows that very well.  The RJ Reynolds High School junior has been visually impaired since birth and first came to the center in 2007

The 16-year-old has volunteered there and now works through a program to teach computer skills to students.

Stewart isn’t sure which college he plans to attend, but after high school he said he plans to go to college. He wants to teach blind and visually impaired students life skills.
