22-year-old born without eyes or nose graduates college

Even though she was born without eyes or a nose due to an “exceedingly rare” congenital disorder, it hasn’t held her back at all.

Cassidy Hooper ran for her high school’s track team. She worked as an usher at concerts. She volunteered at charities. She took a bus from Charlotte to Raleigh, to attend the Governor Morehead School For the Blind each week all by herself.

On Thursday, Cassidy graduated with a degree in Associates of Arts from Central Piedmont Community College, according to WBTV, a station that has been covering her story since she was just 11 years old.

Cassidy’s motto is, “I don’t need easy, I just need possible,”. Words she lives by. Throughout her childhood and teenage years and through a series of reconstructive surgeries she kept repeating those words.

And now, sadly, like many other college graduates, she is amazed at how quickly her time at school quickly passed.

“I got out there and I realized, wait a minute, this is actually happening?!” she told WBTV after walking across the stage at her graduation. “Am I dreaming or am I awake?! It just shocked me at how fast the time went!”

Now it’s time for her next journey in life. Hooper is interested in radio broadcasting as well as worship ministry, and plans to keep studying toward a Bachelor’s degree.

This summer, she hopes to work at her high school in Raleigh. We are praying for her and so proud of what she has already accomplished. God bless her!
