"Will I seem like a child to you if I proclaim this unforgettable line from Saint-Exupéry's Little Prince: You can only see well with the heart, the essential is invisible to the eyes?" What would you say to evolving in a world without image, but filled with noises, echoes, presences that one would believe to touch? This opaque fog is the one in which Aurélie Dauvin lives. Today, she is a French teacher in a high school. She teaches her students to understand the world through words and the sensations they convey. Driven by her dream of teaching, Aurélie was endowed from childhood with an immense desire to go beyond what others called her “handicap”. In a luminous and sensitive style, she tells us about her exceptional journey and the hardships she had to overcome. On her way, she crossed simple happinesses, amused or hostile glances, difficult betrayals and finally love. With words of invigorating accuracy, she takes us by the hand and guides us into the unknown world of blindness. More than a testimony, the story of a great fight, where each chapter is a lesson in surpassing oneself.
