I spoke with Lucas Radaelli, he is a developer that works at Google focusing on Accessibility.
Accessibility refers to the design of products, devices, services, and environments so as to be usable by people with impairments like vision, hearing and mobility.
Lucas himself is visually impaired. He cannot see. But it didn't stop him from becoming a coder. Interesting enough he is part of the users who benefit from his own work at Google with the Accessibility team, which gives him a very unique perspective.
Lucas is a big advocate in the accessibility space. He has spoken at many conference on the subject and recently he has moved from Brazil to the US to become part of the accessibility team at Google.
Listen to this conversation to get inspired by Lucas story and to find out how you too can accomplish anything you want no matter what obstacles come in your way.
