Meet Noah! This 16-year-old radiates enthusiasm and lives life to the fullest. A few days after his birth, Noah was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Coloboma. Coloboma is an eye condition that causes vision impairment. Due to the disorder, Noah has been declared legally blind in both eyes. In addition, Noah lives with cognitive delays that affect his speech, fine motor skills, and learning abilities.
Despite all of his daily challenges, Noah takes on life full steam ahead and doesn’t let anything stop him! Noah loves school, is very social, and has never met a stranger. But above all, it’s his love of hockey that excites him the most!
Noah has been selected as the upcoming UNC Wilmington Collegiate Dream Team Dream Kid! These students will be making Noah’s sports dream come true by having him be a VIP at a Washington Capitals game!
