William (Billy) M. Pickens, III, is a typical 18 year old. He loves to write, talk and listen to music and sports. He is enrolled as a freshman at University of North Carolina-Charlotte as a communications major. He aspires to be a radio broadcaster and writer after graduation. Oh, and Billy happens to be deaf-blind as a result of Norrie’s Disease. He was born totally blind with a progressive hearing loss.

Billy  and his mom, dad and sister, Hazel, live in North Carolina. His mom, Debra, became a member of NFADB in order to obtain information and resources for Billy and her family.
