Bobbie Hickey – a curious 16-year-old girl born blind, but with a big personality. Having had over 150 general anesthetics and in excess of 50 operations, Bobbie has had her fair share of ups and downs. Today, Hickey stands as a 5ft 4inch confident teen, who has a passion for animals, fashion, and adrenalin and has the desire to travel and explore the world. Some of Bobbie’s achievements include receiving her RIB license, (meaning she may be Ireland’s first blind speed boat driver) and taking part in various musicals. Her friends and family know she loves to talk so it was no surprise when Hickey brought home the winning trophy for her previous school’s speech competition and announced she would make an uplifting and motivating speech in front of that same school. Remember, Bobbie is spelled with an IE.
