Jimmy Podsim

Name: Jimmy Podsim

Age: 44

City of residence: Yorktown

Current title: DJ for 2020 The Blink, an Internet radio station

First job: In high school, my dad was a contractor. I worked with him, digging trenches, helping with concrete work, shingling roofs and pretty much anything else you can think of.

What it taught me: I've been legally blind all my life and that was where I started learning that I could do things that seemed complicated, even though I couldn't see what I was doing. All it takes is a little guidance.
