Dearbhla is studying Optometry in TUD with hopes of opening her own practice after graduation. In addition, she wants to spend her post graduate time and newly acquired training to volunteer in developing countries by providing people with eye exams and glasses. Two organisations that she wants to continue to work with are Vision Aid Overseas and Child Vision. Vison Aid Overseas helps people in the developing world who do not have access to an optometrist or glasses and Child Vision is Ireland’s only charity that deals with education and therapy needs of blind and multi-disabled children. She is incredibly passionate about the opportunity to be a global ambassador and believes Ireland is the land of ‘Cead Mile Failte’ which means ‘The land of a thousand welcomes.’ She wants to propagate this message, as the world of tomorrow requires diversity, inclusion, and unity to surpass the problems of the future.
