Quick lunch with Marie H and Aurélie before heading off to take photos of Sarina. I caught the tail end of her interview (which the photo will accompany) and was amazed by her. She was born with only 5% sight and is now completely blind but manages to juggle an incredible amount - she speaks four languages, is top of her class, came second in the selection for the Belgian eurovision contestant (she writes and performs her own music and last year won the competition that I've been following this year for my exhibition - small world), is learning to use a guide dog in order to navigate independently through Brussels, and works with a number of organisations to try and improve facilities for the legally blind.  She's funny, positive and extremely sharp... quite humbling.
