American Paralympic medalist Colleen Young visits Google to discuss
her career journey as a Paralympian and World Champion, and how she
is driving awareness for the visually impaired community.
Colleen Young is a three-time Paralympic medalist, two-time bronze medalist in the 100m breaststroke, and a silver medalist in the 200m Individual Medley for Team USA. Having been born legally blind and with albinism, Colleen began swimming in 2005 at age seven after realizing she could focus on herself instead of a ball, unlike when she played soccer and softball. In 2012, she became the youngest member to compete in the U.S. Paralympic Swimming Team in London at age 14.
