Blind man in Mesa lands job after holding sign on street - ABC15.com (KNXV-TV)

MESA, AZ - Sebastian Ibanez of Mesa was born blind, but he has never let that stand in his way.

We first met him in November after he was holding a sign on a street corner, asking for help finding a job.

Just in time for Christmas, his dreams are coming true.

Sandra Torres manages a branch of Tax Time in Mesa and as soon as January hits, she knows her life will be a flurry of W2s and 1098s.

Torres saw our story and remembered Ibanez as an adventurous classmate of her daughter's.

She recalls one time Sebastian wanted to swim.

"I was so scared about it. He was just getting to the top and he jumped and he swam better than I do," Torres exclaimed. "That day, I knew Sebastian was going to be somebody great for our community."

Even though others questioned how well he would work out, Torres has no doubts about her newest hire.

"He has great vision, he has great vision," she said.

Ibanez may not be able to tell you what color he's wearing and he may not recognize the faces of his own kids. But one thing he's never lost sight of are his dreams.

"There are those who try, those who die trying, and those who never try. I like to be the one who tries and succeeds," Ibanez said.

He will graduate from ASU next December and says he's already...
