Twin sisters from Claudy in County Londonderry who are living with sight loss because of a rare form of albinism are calling on local employers to give disabled people a chance.
Judith and Chloe MacCombe, who are aged 21, believe that they've been unfairly overlooked when applying for jobs.
The girls say they never let their eyesight hold them back from doing things, but they have struggled to find work since graduating from university.
“We’ve been looking for jobs, but a lot of employers see that you have a disability,” Judith said.
“I’ve had a couple of employers come back and say that, because I have a visual impairment, they don’t want to continue my application.
“I would like to see that change so that employers see what you can do.
“We’ve proved through school and getting our degrees we’re more than capable of doing what normal-sighted people can do.”
Judith and Chloe have enlisted the help of Fixers, the group which aims to give young people a voice, in order to get their message across.
